Fife Council welcomes the announcement that Babcock, the UK’s leading engineering support services company, has been awarded a £1.25 billion contract by the UK Ministry of Defence.

It’s estimated work will start by the end of 2019 to build five Type 31 warships at an average cost of £250 million per ship.

Cllr Altany Craik, Convener of Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning and Transportation welcomed the news saying: “This announcement is great news for Babcock, one of our largest employers, and for local people across Fife.
“Babcock’s achievements show that Fife has a first-class engineering skills-base, world leading facilities at Rosyth and that investing in the region can reap real business benefits. Its success story sends a strong message to other national and international companies that Fife has a lot to offer.
“Fife Council continues to work with Babcock and other landowners in showcasing the world leading facilities, capabilities and companies on the Rosyth Waterfront.”
