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.

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).

The second contract (Hard Facilities Management & Alongside Services) covers strategic estate management, infrastructure programme development and delivery and provision of operations, maintenance and alongside services. KBS Maritime will further develop the Portsmouth base infrastructure, securing investment in the local community and ensuring fit-for-purpose, world-leading naval fleet support for the Royal Navy and the UK.

BAE Systems and its legacy companies have a proud heritage of supporting the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Naval Base for more than 20 years, with the last seven years successfully delivering the Maritime Support Delivery Framework (MSDF) as part of Team Portsmouth. Under this contract, BAE Systems has managed the entire Portsmouth Naval Base estate and supported the Portsmouth-based flotilla.

As well as improving ship delivery, and through a successful partnership with the MOD, BAE Systems has helped deliver a number of major improvements to the base under MSDF. These include a Centre of Specialisation for Aircraft Carriers, major improvements to 14 and 15 dock and creation of a new D lock.

The FMSP ensures that Royal Navy personnel benefit from enhanced services and facilities whilst on land or at sea.

FMSP is made up of 11 contracts, replacing the Maritime Support Delivery Framework and Submarine Deep Maintenance Period contracts. All other contract announcements will be made in due course.
