AERIUS Marine to supply HVAC / CBRN-Protection Systems for UK Royal Navy’s Type 26 Global Combat Ship

AERIUS Marine is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by BAE Systems to supply, design and integrate the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)/ CBRN (Chemical,
Biological, Radioactive and Nuclear) protection systems for the new Royal Navy Type 26 Frigates.

The Type 26 represents the future backbone of the Royal Navy and will replace the anti-submarine warfare Type 23 frigates currently in service The Type 26 will provide increased capability through innovative design and is considered to be one the most advanced anti-submarine frigates in the world. The Type 26 will have a displacement of 6,900t, a length of 149.9m, and will host up to 208 crew. The first of class, GLASGOW, is currently under construction at BAE Systems’ facility on the Clyde.

“Our team has been fully integrated within the BAE Sytems’ Type 26 team throughout the past 5 years” said Stephen Clark, Project Manager at AERIUS Marine.
“Such early involvement to support our client’s design team has proven to be successful and drives the ability to have a more mature solution which can be integrated within the ship and of course provide a better product to the UK Royal Navy.”

“We are very proud to have been awarded this important contract by BAE Systems.” said Klaus Aulich, COO of AERIUS Marine, “More than ten years ago we had started our footprint in the UK to develop the HVAC design for the Queen Elizabeth-Class Aircraft Carriers. As a consequence of this, our activities have grown into a strong local UK organisation, which is the second largest within AERIUS Marine besides our German team. By winning the contract to supply these systems for the Type 26, the importance of our UK operations is being further substantiated.”
