The Ministry of Defence has recently awarded a 4 year contract to Salt Separation Services.

The contract, worth approximately £2.3 million, was awarded following a comprehensive pre-qualification and tendering process. 

Under the contract, Salt Separation Services will manufacture, supply and install a Reverse Osmosis plant, which converts seawater into drinking and process water for HM Vanguard Submarines.

The equipment is to replace aging distilling plants which have become difficult to support with many items now obsolescent.


To verify that the plant achieves very stringent noise, vibration and shock requirements, a prototype plant will be produced for type testing.

The company, based in Rochdale, currently provides spares, repairs, management of documentation and 24 hour technical support.

Salt Separation Services have demonstrated their ability and commitment to the Ministry of Defence, having undertaken numerous contracts for Royal Navy vessels.
