BAE Systems secures Future Maritime Support Programme contracts

BAE Systems secures Future Maritime Support Programme contractsBAE Systems will continue to deliver ship asset management, repair and maintenance for the entire Portsmouth flotilla under a £900 million contract. It will also establish a joint venture with KBR — KBS Maritime — to deliver technology led and data-driven facilities management and dockside services at the base, under a £365 million contract. It will combine the expertise of KBR as a global leader in the infrastructure asset management and services market, with BAE Systems’ experience and capability within Portsmouth Naval Base.

David Mitchard, BAE Systems’ Maritime Services business managing director, said: “These new contracts will enable us to continue our vital role in supporting the Royal Navy, at home and abroad, building on our long history of delivery, investment and collaboration at Portsmouth Naval Base.

“Working with our customer, we are proud of the improvements we have made at the base, delivering significant infrastructure improvements and reducing carbon emissions by 65%. We are excited by the opportunity to continue delivering transformation alongside KBR and other new service providers to support the Royal Navy at Portsmouth, mitigating environmental impact of operations, while maintaining critical military outputs.”

The first of the FMSP contracts secured by BAE Systems (ship engineering delivery and management) covers class output management (strategy), design services (technical planning and design) and ship engineering (maintenance, repair and upgrade).

The second contract (hard facilities management and alongside services) covers strategic estate management, infrastructure programme development and delivery and provision of operations, maintenance and alongside services. KBS Maritime will further develop the Portsmouth base infrastructure, securing investment in the local community and ensuring fit-for-purpose, world-leading naval fleet support for the Royal Navy and the UK.

BAE Systems and its legacy companies have supported the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Naval Base for more than 20 years, with the last seven years successfully delivering the maritime support delivery framework (MSDF) as part of Team Portsmouth. Under this contract, BAE Systems has managed the entire Portsmouth Naval Base estate and supported the Portsmouth-based flotilla.

As well as improving ship delivery, and through a successful partnership with the MoD, BAE Systems has helped deliver a number of major improvements to the base under MSDF. These include a Centre of Specialisation for Aircraft Carriers, major improvements to 14 and 15 dock and creation of a new D lock.

The company has also helped reduce carbon emissions from approximately 100,000 tonnes to 35,000 tonnes per year over the last 15 years, supported by the creation of a “state of the art’ combined heat and power (CHP) plant to supply power to the aircraft carriers and the introduction of electric vehicles to the base.

The company has also helped the customer to develop its carbon profile and roadmap for Portsmouth Naval Base, and will support the implementation of the roadmap to achieve the MoD’s net zero goals by 2050.
