Supporting the Royal Navy

The government has launched a £1.5 billion competition to build three new Fleet Solid Support ships, delivering a vital boost to our shipbuilding industry and creating high-skilled jobs across the country.

  • As we embrace our future as a truly Global Britain, we must ensure our Armed Forces have the equipment and resources they need to support their operations around the world.
  • That is why, as part of our £24 billion funding boost for our Armed Forces, the government is launching a £1.5 billion competition inviting shipbuilding companies to build and design these three warships; and the competition will also maximise UK social value and investment in domestic shipyards.
  • This will ensure our Royal Navy is equipped with the world-leading capabilities it needs, while securing high-skilled jobs  and boosting homegrown skills across the UK.
