The Ministry of Defence has awarded a £1bn contract to Serco Denholm Marine Services to supply the Royal Navy fleet.

Serco Denholm will supply and operate tugs and pilot boats to move the fleet in and out of port. It will also handle passenger and crew transfer to and from ships, loading of stores and removal of waste from the ships.

The company will operate around 110 vessels in both port and deep water operations as part of a new agreement.

Under previous deals, the majority of marine services were handled by Serco Denholm, with the Royal Maritime Auxiliary Service (RMAS) carrying out additional duties. The RMAS will be dissolved in March 2008 and all staff will transfer to Serco.

The company is expected to introduce 30 new vessels during the course of the 15-year deal.
