A major deal to support and supply range safety and aircrew training vessels to the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has been signed.

The £39m, seven-year contract will provide range safety patrol vessels at military firing ranges (with river and coastal boundaries) and marine support to tri-service aircrew training across the MOD.

Initially the contract will run for five years until March 2023, with an option to extend and provide for helicopter training, sea survival drills, target-towing, fast-attack craft simulations and range safety. This supports the operational readiness of military personnel across all three Services.

The deal was signed between John Hayers, Deputy Head Ships Commercial of Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) and Paul de Jong, Managing Director Smit International (Scotland) Ltd, part of the Boskalis Group.
