Repair or replace service for Royal Navy frigates

A three year single source repair and site maintenance contract for rotating equipment signed this month with Portsmouth based Fleet Support Ltd (FSL) means that Wyko will receive all the motors and pumps for repair or replacement from four Royal Navy frigates undergoing refits. Wyko’s expert marine services team will also undertake switchboard, generator, and wiring overhaul and refurbishment work onboard the ships. FSL has the order to refit HMS Richmond and announced at the beginning of September that it had also been awarded a multi million pound contract by BAE Systems to overhaul, prepare and transfer three Royal Navy type 23 frigates – HMS Grafton, HMS Marlborough and HMS Norfolk – to the Chilean Navy. Jon Mayoh, Lewis Fisher and Mike Brook from Wyko led the successful tender. Brook comments: “We supplied a comprehensive proposal and our local team lead by Jim Rive have worked well with FSL on previous contracts, and we feel that this gave FSL confidence in us to deliver. We believe the unbiased way we are able to offer the best solution to a maintenance question was also a strong factor.” Wyko will carry out condition testing and visual inspections of the ships motors and pumps, including electrical, thermal, noise, vibration and lubrication analysis. The data will be used to identify any potential issues and enable Wyko to judge the cost and timescale of repairs. Any repairs that are carried out will be guaranteed and are likely to boost performance and efficiency as well as improving reliability.
