Babcock and BMT sign cooperation agreement to develop future surface ships
Babcock and BMT have signed a cooperation agreement, which outlines the principles of a strategic relationship that will see the companies collaborate to support the Design, Build, Construction and Support of future classes of Surface Ships for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and other international projects, the company said in its press release.
The initial focus will be cooperation on the recently announced Type31e programme and the ability to offer a world-leading UK design alliance solution to the MoD.
The new arrangement draws on the combined strengths of Babcock and BMT and will deliver innovative, capable, affordable and flexible customer solutions, within a fast changing and increasingly demanding environment. Both organisations will jointly explore their available designs to determine the best possible option that meets the cost, capability, and delivery requirements of the Royal Navy.
