Dozens of jobs have been safeguarded in Cornwall.

The MoD has extended an £80 million maintenance contract.

It will involve work at A&P Falmouth to continue supporting and maintaining Royal Fleet Auxiliary ships at home and abroad.

Peter Child, Managing Director, said the contract extension through to June 2018 was confirmation that the Cluster Support Programme partnership with the MOD provided excellent value for money. 

“Clustering has achieved a far more economical approach to ship repair and maintenance of the RFA Flotilla through advanced planning, our knowledge of the vessels, our highly skilled workforce and pride of ‘ownership’ of the ships.

“The cluster programme team has worked very hard on this contract in Falmouth and around the world supporting ships on deployment. Extension of this contract reaffirms that A&P can be trusted to meet the very complex needs of our clients and the longer term contract term helps to give A&P Group yards security in our future.”

Gerald Pitts, A&P’s Cluster Director, said:

“The longevity and continuity of this contract means we can take forward opportunities for innovation and improvement we have identified since being awarded the Through Life Support contract in 2008.

“I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to the A&P workforce, the Cluster team and our key suppliers for their hard work over the past four and a half years. They have successfully demonstrated that the Cluster contract has so far delivered value for money and increased fleet availability for the Ministry of Defence.”
