BAE Systems will retain its key role supporting the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Naval Base, UK with the company recently securing two major contracts.

The contracts, secured as part of the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP) competition, are worth up to £1.3 billion over five years, and will commence on 1 October 2021 following a transition period.

BAE 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 to deliver technology-led and data-driven facilities management and dockside services at the base, under a £365 million contract. The joint venture – to be called KBS Maritime - 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, Managing Director of BAE Systems’ Maritime Services business, 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’re proud of the improvements we’ve made at the base, delivering significant infrastructure improvements and reducing carbon emissions by 65%. We’re 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, whilst 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).

BAE Systems and its legacy companies have a proud heritage of supporting the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Naval Base for more than 20 years.
