The project was awarded through the Engineering Delivery Partner (EDP) Agreement that is managed by the UK Ministry of Defence’s Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S). EDP is helping the UK MOD reduce the costs of their engineering services while ensuring the UK’s Armed Forces receive the best equipment and support.
The award will enable the DE&S Ships Maintenance Management Team to draw on BMT’s naval expertise with technical reviews and updates of maintenance manuals and technical publications.
Jim Biss, DE&S Lead, commented:
“By continuing to work with BMT, this contract will provide DE&S with additional resource to review, update and generate safe, accurate and current technical content for our surface ships. The publications are integral to the safe operation, maintenance and repair of maritime systems, equipment and platforms operated by the Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary.”
Simon Willmore, Head of Technical Information and Documentation Services at BMT, said:
“The contract demonstrates the excellent value we, and the Aurora Engineering Partnership, provide DE&S in terms of technical knowledge and customer service. Over the course of this contract, we will be taking legacy documents and formats, updating them to the latest templates and standards as well as reviewing and incorporating any technical or legislative changes that are needed to keep personnel safe and assets operationally ready.”
QinetiQ, Atkins, a member of SNC-Lavalin Group, and BMT joined forces to form The Aurora Engineering Partnership to support DE&S transformation strategy and drive benefits through the delivery of engineering services.
