Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

December 30, 2014

Babcock has been awarded a 12-month contract to assist in designing the engineering support solution for the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers.
 
Under the £1.17 million contract the U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD), Babcock and BAE Systems will work together to develop the optimum, fit-for-purpose engineering support solution for the new aircraft carriers, as part of the wider Support Development Phase.
 
Babcock and BAE Systems will be involved in four support development phase work-streams – Class Management, Design Management, Maintenance Management and Information Knowledge Management. Under these work-streams Babcock and BAE Systems will design technical services and maintenance solutions to ensure the carriers are available for their operational requirements.
 
Mike Whalley, Babcock Managing Director Warships said, “We have a unique and timely opportunity to deliver an innovative support solution that is focused not only on the successful transition of the Queen Elizabeth Class into Service but will also underpin and de-risk her operational support program worldwide. This is further testament to the benefits of operating in an enterprise with BAE Systems, Royal Navy and the Ministry of Defense to deliver optimized engineering support.”
