This year’s DSEI event in London will see the launch of an exciting, innovative naval platform design from leading international design, engineering and risk management consultancy, BMT Group Ltd (BMT). Breaking the mould and offering fresh new thinking in ship design, the new concept will take centre stage on BMT’s stand which will showcase the company’s extensive range of capabilities and designs within the defence and security sectors.
BMT’s platform designs have enjoyed a number of successes this year, most notably seeing it's HMS Queen Elizabeth carrier (QEC) head out of the Firth of Forth and undergo her maiden sea trials, as well as welcoming RFA TIDESPRING, the first MARS tanker to the UK. BMT’s VENATOR®-110 which combines lean, manned and adaptable capability with the affordable procurement cost and dimensions of a Light Frigate will also feature on the stand. Designed to meet the breadth of different needs and budgets of navies and coastguards worldwide, VENATOR-110 balances capability, survivability and cost following a significant design effort in conjunction with equipment and system suppliers. BMT’s stand will also showcase the highly capable CAIMEN®-90 Fast tri-bow landing craft, a concept currently receiving considerable attention in markets such as Japan and the US, and its submarine design capabilities.
Drawing on years of engineering consultancy experience, BMT can also provide Asset Management solutions spanning the whole procurement lifecycle. Experts from across BMT will be on hand at DSEI to discuss how to reduce risk and improve the through life performance of assets. In addition to this, subject matter experts will be available to present recent developments in BMT’s cyber threat analytics and big data architecture capabilities.
The BMT Reality Studios team will be demonstrating the latest in innovative software solutions, immersive training applications and insightful big data analytics across a range of markets. The stand will have an immersive virtual reality demonstration for visitors to try; a ‘show must try!’
Jeremy Berwick, Managing Director of Defence at BMT comments: “DSEI provides us with a superb platform for us to present our world class engineering, design, asset management and complex programme credentials to the international defence and security market. This year will be our 7th show and without doubt, our most impressive yet - we are particularly excited by the opportunity to showcase the investments we have made in new technologies and innovative designs that deliver affordable and enduring through life solutions to our customers. We look forward to welcoming our customers, partners and suppliers from around the world during what will be a fabulous week.”
