The Royal Navy has named Babcock as the preferred bidder for designing and building a new generation of Royal Navy frigates.

 

A consortium led by Babcock has secured the order for the £1.25 billion contract for five Type 31 warships.

 

The deal will secure hundreds of jobs at Rosyth, where the ships will be assembled, with construction work spread between yards across the UK.

 

Work is to begin by the end of 2019, with the first ships delivered in 2023.
