ILS package adds to winning design
Designed for Marine Specialised Technology (MST), the two new 19m fast, patrol vessels will provide the Royal Navy Gibraltar Squadron with a modern, high-speed, and effective capability for fulfilling their important role.
Sarah Kenny, Chief Executive at BMT commented: “We are excited that our design has been selected for this technically challenging project. This contract is a great reflection of the way our teams can combine expertise to produce a winning design, as well as a tailored ILS package. The 19m vessels will provide a step forward in enhancing operational capabilities for the Royal Navy’s Gibraltar Squadron.”
“BMT has an extensive range of proven in-service patrol boats for the demanding military and coastguard sectors in the UK and overseas. This latest contract underscores our agility in producing carefully tailored designs that suit each individual operator’s particular requirements.”
BMT has a wealth of experience in naval architecture for commercial, military and export applications, covering hull development, class level designs and detailed production engineering for a wide array of vessels and platform technologies. The company released details earlier this year on its innovative design work on the Pentamaran hull platform for autonomous operations.
