HMS Sutherland hosts UK defence services industry day in South Korea

A UK defence services industry day has been held on board the Royal Navy Type 23 frigate HMS Sutherland in Pyeongtaek naval base, South Korea.

Cohort plc company SEA showcased its role as a leading supplier of Torpedo Launch Systems (TLS) at the event, having supplied its TLS to recent and ongoing programmes for the Royal Thai Navy, Royal Malaysian Navy and Philippines Navy, and used the industry day to highlight its capability to leading South Korean shipbuilders.

SEA worked with shipbuilders DSME in supplying triple stack trainable NATO standard lightweight TLS for the Royal Thai Navy’s DW3000F Class frigate. The company is currently working with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) supplying similar TLS for two new HDF-3000 frigates being built for the Philippines Navy.

More than 100 visitors attended the industry day, including representatives from the Republic of Korea Navy and potential Korean industry partners and distributors. SEA was one of 13 UK companies in attendance.

SEA’s South East Asia Vice President, Strategic Accounts, David Hinds commented that the event to showcase the best in British defence equipment was a considerable success.

He added: “With Korean shipyards building and upgrading so many of the naval assets operating throughout the region, this was a great opportunity to engage with them and showcase our capabilities.”
