UK. BMT to Provide Asset Management Support for UK MODís Common Workboats Contract

Wednesday, 09 August 2017


BMT Asset Performance Ltd and BMT Defence Services Ltd, subsidiaries of BMT Group (BMT), are pleased to be members of the Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) team, who has today announced that it has been awarded a contract valued at £48m for the supply and support of Common Workboats for the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) over a six-year period.

Ranging in size from 11 to 18 metres, the multi-role ‘SEA Class’ vessels share common components and will be modular in design.  This unique approach enables rapid reconfiguration for a range of specialised operational roles, including: Dive support; Explosive Ordnance Disposal; Officer training; Passenger transport; Arctic exploration, Hydrographic survey and Logistic re-supply. 

Selected for its pedigree in delivery to the UK MoD Commercially Supported Shipping (CSS) Boats Team, BMT will integrate with the AEUK project delivery team providing Safety and Environmental Management and Technical Documentation to the acquisition of up to 38 workboats, and extended programme of In-Service Support from 2018 until 2024.  The safety and environmental analysis of the ‘SEA Class’ vessels will consider likely In-Service Hazards and their control from the design and functional safety perspective, as required by the Platform Authorities’ (PA) acknowledged roles and responsibilities.  The environmental analysis will consider the potential environmental risks and impacts posed by the platform, whilst also supplying Technical Documentation to support the safe operation and maintenance of the ‘SEA Class’ vessels to the AEUK team.

Julian Woolley, Head of Business Development - Underwater Systems at BMT Asset Performance comments: “We look forward to working closely with AEUK and its suppliers in support of the Workboat project and the delivery of safe and environmentally compliant ‘SEA Class’ vessels.”
