Babcock Secures Contract with UK MoD

Babcock International, an Aerospace and Defence company, in partnership with Wing Inflatables Inc., has secured a five year contract to provide more than 200 inflatable boats to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) Boat Support Team for Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Dive teams.
 
This follows the recent award of the Boat Support contract, which will draw on Babcock’s experience of providing in-service support to the existing small boat fleet.
 
Based on a standardised new design, derived from the highly successful Wing P Series of inflatable craft and delivering three role specific variants, Babcock will be responsible for management of the programme as well as provision of in-service support; whilst Wing Henshaw Inc. will build the craft, supported by their UK centre.
 
Sean Donaldson, Managing Director Babcock Energy and Marine, said: “This contract supports critical maritime operations and enables us to embed our proven defence capability.”
