Babcock And Thales Bid For Type 31e Light Frigate For Royal Navy

Babcock International Group PLC (BAB.L) Monday said it launched a bid for UK Ministry of Defence's new 1.25 billion pound Type 31e general purpose light frigate programme.

Babcock and Thales have joined forces with BMT, Harland & Wolff and Ferguson Marine to form 'Team 31' to deliver world-class ships that will drive economic benefits throughout the UK. Babcock will act as the overall programme lead, whilst Thales will have overall responsibility for the development of the Mission System solution.

Team 31's modular build approach will make use of UK facilities, innovation, and skills to deliver an affordable and effective Type31e Frigate programme for the Royal Navy.
