Team Resolute selected as preferred bidder to build the Fleet Solid Support Ships

#Linkinbio 

Subject to final ministerial approval, the Team Resolute consortium comprising BMT, Harland & Wolff and Navantia has been selected ahead of Team UK to build the three Fleet Solid Support Ships. This decision has been announced earlier than expected and will prove to be controversial due to the heavy involvement by aSpanish shipbuilder.

#ExperimentalVessel XV Patrick Blackett has been in alongside in Portsmouth since commissioning in July to allow transfer of a commercially certificated platform onto the Defence Shipping Register. 

The work is complex but she should be ready to go to sea by the end of the year.

While alongside she has been used for an industry engagement day as well as daily training and work opportunities to make best use of her flexible space.

Her crew will need to spend some time on familiarisation at sea before the experimentation programme can begin.

The RN has ordered further PODS (Modular capabilities carried in shipping containers) at least two of which will initially be tested on the cargo deck of the XV.
