SALVAS is our utility auxiliary ship design, is a specialist vessel that has been developed to combat the complexity of maritime operations.
We can customise the baseline platform to meet specific naval requirements, including survivability, communications and self defence features.
This vessel helps deliver maximum utilisation and return on investment through it's flexibility to undertake multiple missions including:
Underwriting a commitment to submarine rescue, BMT's SALVAS offers options to host built-in or portable Submarine Rescue Systems (SRS) from any supplier, allowing the ship’s layout to be optimised in order to facilitate the flow of rescuees from the rescue vehicle or water into decompression and to the built-in medical complex.
A helicopter deck has also been added to extend the capability of the platform.
BMT developed a safety product using GSN which interfaces with LHD Hazard log, resulting in a tool that will provide a continuous understanding of the safety status of the LHD capability.
Our support vessels have been developed as a cost-effective option for complying with international maritime regulations to reduce the risk of pollution. AEGIR offers navies a customisable alternative to commercial replenishment tanker capability.
In partnership with Thales Naval UK, BMT's twin island carrier design, complete with reconfigurable flight deck options, was the winning design for the QEC Aircraft Carrier.
Flexible and affordable, the BMT CAIMEN Landing Craft family provides customisable solutions that can be adapted to suit the requirements of military and security forces worldwide.
