Avingtrans subsidiary Hayward Tyler has secured a contract for the delivery of high-integrity pumps for the UK Royal Navy’s Astute-class nuclear-powered submarine fleet.

In addition to supplying the pumps, the company will be responsible for providing the UK Navy with through life vessel support.

Deliveries will be carried out by the Hayward Tyler team based at the company facility in Luton, England, UK.

Avingtrans Engineered Pumps and Motors Division president Mike Turmelle said: “We are delighted to secure this contract for continued support to the UK nuclear submarine fleet.

“This win highlights the engineering excellence within the group that we continue to develop and that underpins our forward strategy.”

“It’s a great win for our Luton team and a clear indication of our commitment to continue supporting the programme for many more decades to come.”

Hayward Tyler is a performance-critical electric motors and pumps manufacturer that supports the Royal Navy’s submarine programme from both its UK facilities in Luton and East Kilbride.

Avingtrans chief executive officer Steve McQuillan said: “This is a great win for Mike and the team and clearly shows how we have maintained continuity through the Hayward Tyler integration and are building solidly for the future.

“This win highlights the engineering excellence within the group that we continue to develop and that underpins our forward strategy.”

Other sister firms of the company, Peter Brotherhood, Stainless Metalcraft and Ormandy Rycroft, are also responsible for supporting the UK Navy, including the recent production and testing of the steam turbines for the Astute-class vessels.

Designed to replace the Royal Navy’s five Swiftsure-class submarines, the fleet of seven Astute-class ships are to be based at Faslane in Scotland.
