After an extensive tender process, Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions has been awarded a contract to design the fixed fire fighting solutions for the UK MOD’s new Type 26 Global Combat Ship Programme.
Appointed by main contractor BAE Systems, it was the market leading position of Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions and the company’s proven track record and specialist expertise in the marine sector, which was fundamental to the success of its tender.
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: “Throughout the design phase we have worked closely with BAE Systems and the Royal Navy to ensure the solution for the new Type 26 Global Combat Ships meets the specific requirements of such a unique environment. This collaborative approach was vital to meet both client and end user requirements.
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.”
