Babcock International Group PLC, the Royal Navy’s leading submarine support partner, London, 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 (submarine Engineerd Support 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.
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.
