New naval order

A new naval order underlines the strength of Promat´s marine offerings.

The UK’s leading manufacturer of passive fire protection panels and systems for marine applications has secured a major new order for a naval vessel project. The order will see passive fire protection and doors from Promat UK installed on three advanced new vessels being built for the Royal Navy by BAE Systems.

“Promat has a long track record of supplying passive fire protection for the marine market,” says the company’s Marine Manager Colin Brady “We have recently provided protection for a number of similar naval vessels being built in other countries, so we were delighted to secure this new order for three new River Class Batch 2 Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) being built for the Royal Navy.”

The new 90-metre long OPVs vessels are being built in Glasgow and will each feature Promat’s passive fire protection products. The OPVs are based on a proven design which is already in service with other naval forces, and will be capable of ocean patrols with a range in excess of 5,000 nautical miles and a maximum speed of 24 knots. The first is expected to be delivered to the Royal Navy in 2017.

Promat has a long track record of providing passive fire protection products for marine applications. The company backs these products with extensive technical support to create bespoke protection systems, which combine high performance, significant space and weight savings and fast installation characteristics.
