Call 2 - Underwater Coating Systems


The Royal Navy requires systems for preparing and re-preserving small areas of submerged and water backed structures that outperform our current systems. The entire process must meet the requirements of the appropriate DEFSTAN and NORSOK standards and relevant environmental guidelines, in order that the system will not degrade in a time not less than 8 months. Avoidance of contaminants, through proven cleaning processes or the ability to filter or remove suspended solids from the water is of particular interest, in addition to resistance to bio-fouling.

If your company has the relevant experience, skills and technologies which could be utilised by the Royal Navy and Babcock in the defence sector for this call, please register your interest today.
