Order for HVAC Equipment to Type 31e Frigate Project

Novenco AS in Norway is proud to have been awarded the contract for Design, Supply, Certification and Commissioning of the Chilled Water Plant and HVAC Equipment to the Type 31 General Purpose Frigates for the UK Royal Navy.

The order is for supply to five vessels and was received from Babcock International Group. The Type 31 Frigates will be built at Babcock’s Rosyth site in Scotland.

Each type 31 Frigate will be 139 meters long. Babcock’s Arrowhead 140 design is based on the Iver Huitfeldt class Frigate, currently in service with the Danish Navy. Babcock is working together with Odense Maritime Technology (OMT) in Denmark marketing the design to offer a diverse range of export opportunities.

The equipment will be delivered from 2022 until end of 2025.
