Three picked for £300M BAE submarine base

Three contractors have been appointed by BAE Systems as framework contractors on the £300M revamp of its submarine site, in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.

The eight-year programme involves the redevelopment of the base in preparation for the building of a replacement for the Vanguard class submarines, as part of the renewal of the UK’s nuclear deterrent.

Costain, Morgan Sindall, and Shepherd will carry out the work, which involves project delivery on operational sites and integration of works into existing submarine build programmes. Work will commence in early 2015.

Andrew Wyllie, chief executive of Costain, said: “We have been selected for our expertise in the process, mechanical and electrical delivery of nuclear projects, as well as our reputation for working collaboratively with our customers, other delivery partners and the local community.

“We are looking forward to a long term and successful relationship with BAE Systems, a major new customer for us.”
