The show, co-hosted by the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN), Busan Metropolitan City and Korea International Trade Association, offers attendees the opportunity to gain insights into naval platforms, maritime defence systems & equipment, marine defence industry products and defence industry related products & technology.

With the development of its assembly, maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Busan, where the company is assembling Highly-Mechanised Weapons Handling Systems for the ROKN Jangbogo-III submarine programme, Babcock is employing local talent, building local partnerships and growing its supply chain in South Korea. The company has a seven year contract supporting the submarine programme until 2024.

MADEX 2021 provides the perfect platform for Babcock to engage with international delegates about its long-standing experience and innovation in equipment supply, platform design and build, training, consultancy services, naval facility management and in service support.

As well as exhibiting, Babcock delegates will also present across a number of topics at the conference and exhibition. This will include Digital Transformation and the Digitally Enabled Ship – where Neil Young, Engineering and Technology Director of Babcock’s Marine Sector will outline Babcock’s integration of digital technologies into naval shipbuilding and transforming data into decision making.

Babcock will also join UK Industry and the Department for International Trade as part of a bespoke UK Pavilion at the show. This will promote UK companies keen to share experiences gained in South Korea and other countries in the region and long-term, strategic industrial partnerships.

Clinton Bixter, Vice President Babcock Korea: “MADEX 2021 is a great opportunity for Babcock Korea to showcase its presence in the region and to promote Babcock’s experience across design and build, technology integration and the in-service support we can offer to a wide range of naval programmes.

“Establishing our Busan base provides us with great access and insight into the South Korean market and the wider region. Our team will be available on-stand to discuss our extensive range of support capability for vessels both above and below the waterline. We look forward to meeting delegates at the show.”
