Babcock International Group has chosen Hamworthy Pumps as supplier of pump solutions for the five new Royal Navy Type 31 frigates.

The contract includes the delivery of a total of 235 pumps over a five-year period.

As a subcontractor for Babcock International Group, Hamworthy Pumps will supply the pump solutions for five highly specialised Type 31 military vessels.

By 2028, Babcock International Group will have built five new Type 31 frigates for the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy, and Hamworthy Pumps will supply the pump solutions.

With this contract, the two companies strengthen an already close and long-standing collaboration on deliveries to the government market in the UK. Including the Type 23 (Duke class) frigates, which were built from 1989 to 2002 and have proven their versatility in naval operations around the world.

Jim McGookin, Key Account Manager at Hamworthy Pumps and responsible for the collaboration with Babcock International Group, said: “The Hamworthy business was founded in 1914 on Poole Quay in Dorset, and we are proud to once again have the opportunity to contribute to an important frigate programme in the United Kingdom. We are currently expanding our Poole capabilities, and this order shows that we have the right setup to handle large and complex projects in the region.”

 The Babcock International Group contract includes the delivery of a total of 235 pumps over a five-year period.

According to the newly appointed CEO, Hans Christiaan Laheij, the Type 31 programme will be an important reference in the coming years, with Hamworthy Pumps further increasing its focus on the Navy segment.

“Hamworthy Pumps has a long history as a supplier for naval projects and a significant installed base on military ships in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands, among others. In addition to the contract for the Type 31 frigates, we also have significant contracts for new ships for the US Navy. It gives us an excellent position to be considered for other upcoming naval projects,” says Hans Christiaan Laheij.

For example, a key element of the Type 31 programme is to supply a design with the potential to secure a range of export orders and thereby supporting the UK economy and UK jobs.

If international customers wish to develop local build and support capabilities, Hamworthy Pumps will support a collaboration approach with a range of export strategies to maximise local in-country content.
