Babcock Secures DE&S Contract for More Than 200 Inflatable Boats

Babcock International, the Aerospace and Defence company, in partnership with Wing Inflatables Inc., has secured a five year contract to provide more than 200 inflatable boats to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) Boat Support Team for Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Dive teams.

This follows the recent award of the Boat Support contract which will draw on Babcock’s experience of providing in-service support to the existing small boat fleet.

Based on a standardised new design, derived from the highly successful Wing P Series of inflatable craft and delivering three role specific variants, Babcock will be responsible for management of the programme as well as provision of in-service support; whilst Wing Henshaw Inc. will build the craft, supported by their UK centre Wing Henshaw.
