Babcock has won a five-year contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to deliver engineering services to the Navy.

The aviation and engineering support and aircraft services (AESAS) contract includes the provision of forward maintenance and aircraft engineering for Merlin, Sea King, Lynx and Wildcat helicopters, general airfield engineering services and support to aircraft operations, the company announced Monday.

The AESAS contract is to provide full service delivery by 1 January 2016 and will involve the TUPE transfer of a significant number of skilled staff to Babcock.

As a result of successfully meeting an early milestone in the service provision and output based contract which began on 1 April 2015, Babcock will increase its responsibility for managing the procurement of equipment spares and repairables on behalf of the MoD, to include transacting with suppliers directly.

In combination, the two contracts will generate an additional £100 million of revenue per year.
