Babcock will lead a joint bid for a new £1.25bn UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) type 31 frigate contract. 

Babcock along with Thales, BMT, Harland & Wolff and Ferguson Marine will form 'Team 31' to deliver the ships, the company said in a statement Monday. 

Babcock will act as the overall programme lead, while Thales will have overall responsibility for the development of the Mission System solution. Babcock and BMT will work in development of designs for both naval and commercial vessels. 

Ferguson Marine on the Clyde, Harland & Wolff in Belfast as well as the Babcock facilities in Fife and Devon will all have roles to play, while much of the equipment provided by Thales and others will support jobs across the UK.
