Babcock Awarded £155 million Submarine Engineered Support Contract (SESC)

Friday, Apr 10, 2009

Babcock International Group PLC, the Royal Navy’s leading submarine support partner, has been awarded a £155 million contract to provide in-service engineering support to the UK’s submarine flotilla over the next ten years.

Babcock will lead the industry team, the Submarine Support Management Group (SSMG), to deliver the SESC contract.  This builds on the strong relationships established during the previous eleven years of successful support provided by SSMG. 

SSMG will be responsible for providing a wide range of design and technical support services and will work as a joint team with the Ministry of Defence.  The new contract is performance based against shared goals with greater emphasis placed on managing through-life issues rather than specific tasks.  This will enable the SSMG to drive cost-reduction and efficiencies across the totality of the support enterprise. 

In addition, one of the key objectives of this joint support arrangement is to create a greater pool of Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP) to provide sustainable submarine support in the future.

Babcock Chief Executive Peter Rogers commented:  “I am delighted we have been awarded this contract and look forward to building on the strong partnership we have established with the Ministry of Defence.   Through the specialist knowledge and experience within our business, we will seek to transform the provision of through-life submarine support.”
