The contract award secures more than 2,000 jobs and demonstrates our enduring commitment to the Solent region and to Portsmouth, home of the Royal Navy. It follows a successful 12 year track record delivering services in Portsmouth, during which we have delivered savings in excess of £173 million for the taxpayer.

The contract award secures more than 2,000 jobs and demonstrates BAE Systems enduring commitment to the Solent region and to Portsmouth, home of the Royal Navy. It follows a successful 12 year track record delivering services in Portsmouth, during which the company has delivered savings in excess of £173 million for the taxpayer.

The UK Ministry of Defence has awarded BAE Systems a five-year £600 million contract to support half of the Royal Navy's surface Fleet on UK and global operations as well as the management of HM Naval Base Portsmouth.

John Hudson, Managing Director, Maritime at BAE Systems, said: "This contract is an excellent example of our continued commitment to work collaboratively with the Royal Navy to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of operations at our Portsmouth business."

"This is an exciting time for everyone at the naval base. Working together, we will prepare the naval base for the arrival of the UK's Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers and continue to use our ship design and build knowledge to support the surface Fleet in service. This supports the Royal Navy's operational capability and will deliver further savings for taxpayers."

Commodore Jeremy Rigby, Commander of Portsmouth Naval Base, said: "The contract will keep the base running at the highest standards and will ensure our ships are in the best possible condition and operating at the highest capability. It has sustained more than 2,000 jobs at the base and many more in the supply chain."

"This announcement comes at an exciting time for Portsmouth Naval Base as we prepare for the arrival of the Royal Navy's two new aircraft carriers - HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales."
