We remain committed to working closely with Babcock to safely deliver submarine support work, including planned maintenance projects. The contract for HMS Vanguard's planned period of extended maintenance and refuel work was awarded in 2015 and is funded by the Ministry of Defence (MOD). The MOD has an existing team in Devonport in support of submarine maintenance delivery; this is part of a long-standing arrangement, which now includes increased performance monitoring.</p> more like this
