J+S Ltd has recently been awarded a £1.0m contract for the design and supply of four ship sets of sonar transducers by the Defence Materiel Organisation of the Royal Netherlands Navy. The transducers will be installed in the PHS-36 hull-mounted sonar onboard the M-Class frigates operated by the Dutch and Belgian navies.

It is hoped that options for further ship sets, for the M-class frigates operated by the Chilean and Portuguese Navies will be taken up next year.

J+S Ltd has been supplying transducer products to the Royal Navy for many years but the award of this contract continues a trend of recent successes in the export market. In the last two years the company has delivered more than £1.5m of transducer orders to overseas customers and the latest win confirms its ability to compete in the international market.

Commenting on the award of the contract, a spokesman for the DMO said:

“I am delighted to announce that J+S has been awarded this contract which was won against international competition. The development, production and support programme offered by them meets all our requirements and provides excellent value for money. J+S has enormous experience of designing and delivering transducers for naval customers and we look forward to working with them.

David Jeffries, Managing Director of J+S, commented:

“The award of this contract is highly significant since it represents a major export refit order won against tough competition. In recent years we have increased our focus on the export markets to compensate in part for the reduced spending on Naval support activities in the UK market. Whilst our early successes in the export markets tended to be based on refit programmes on vessels sold pursuant to the Royal Navy fleet disposal programmes we are now achieving success in the wider market place.”
