The UK Ministry of Defence’s ultra-modern combat ships to be protected by Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions.
After an extensive tender process, Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions has been awarded a contract by BAE Systems to design the fixed fire fighting solutions for the UK Ministry of Defence’s new Type 26 Global Combat Ship Programme. The team at Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions developed a bespoke design package consisting of a variety of systems including water, mist, foam and gaseous solutions. The completed designs are due to be issued to BAE Systems and Lloyds Register in June of 2014.
Graham Linney, Engineering Manager – Marine, at Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions, commented: ‘Although our experience working on earlier naval vessels was valuable, it was important that for a new generation of naval ships, we were innovative in our approach. I believe we have achieved this and have excelled in the bespoke solutions developed.’
