Description: The Military Afloat Reach and Sustainability (MARS) Tankers will replace the current single hulled tankers operated by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Complexities in the build of the first ship Tidespring have resulted in delays. This is reflected in the Q2 RAG rating. Technical difficulties have now been resolved and the ship has now been completed and is on its delivery voyage. Lessons learned from Tidespring are expected to ensure any further delays to ships 2 to 4 are minimised.
Start date: 2005-07-25
End date: 2018-04-30
Schedule text: Delays in the build have impacted on milestones and a Review Note was issued 23/09/16 revising Tidespring ISD and Full Operating Capability (FOC). With the major delay centred on the first ship the delivery drumbeat of ships 2 to 4 is likely to tighten adding pressures to RFA manpower constraints.
