Second Round Of F-35 Maintenance Work Contracted

More work for Sealand.

On Aviation Week:-

Having secured the lionís share of the first round of contracts, British industry has also grabbed a significant proportion of work in the second, British government officials have confirmed. This will lead to the creation of additional jobs at Sealand Support Services Limited (SSSL), the joint venture established between BAE Systems Northrop Grummanand the Defense Electronics and Components Agency (DECA). It will carry out the component repair work at its facility in Sealand, Wales, to support European operators of the aircraft.

The MRO work is due to start at Sealand in 2021. The additional work is said to be worth around £500 million ($643.6 million).
