Work began in summer 2013 on the second period of Cammell Laird’s through-life support cluster contract to maintain nine of the 13 ships in the RFA flotilla. The cluster contract was first awarded to Cammell Laird in 2008, then in 2013 following reviews of performance and value for money, the contract was extended for a further five years to 2018.
The large amount of military refit work undertaken has allowed Cammell Laird to develop a range of skills in excess of those usually found in a shiprepair company. These include the refurbishment and upgrade of aviation, magazine and military communications facilities which all demand the highest level of quality and accuracy.
The menu to the left gives some specific examples of refit projects we have previously completed.
