UK MoD - HMS York gets refit


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
UK MoD
: 13 February, 2008  (Company News)
The MoD has awarded a £17M makeover contract for Type 42 destroyer, HMS York, to Portsmouth based Fleet Support Ltd (FSL).
Work for the upkeep includes the maintenance of the Sea Dart missile launcher, improvements to fuel efficiency, and upgrading the galley and domestic equipment to improve on-board living.

Minister for Defence Equipment and Support, Baroness Taylor, said:

'A vibrant shipbuilding industry is essential to the UK. This is important for contracts for new powerful ships and the vital maintenance and upkeep work to our existing fleet.

'This 17 Million contract to Fleet Support Limited is excellent news for Portsmouth and will ensure HMS York remains capable of playing a valuable front-line role in future operations.'

The major tasks on board HMS York include fitting a new ship's IT network which involves installing cabling throughout the whole vessel. Another internal network to be re-wired with multi-core cabling will be the ship's communication system, while the ship's interior accommodation and crew facilities are also set to be upgraded.

HMS York is the first refit of 2008 for Fleet Support Limited. Work has already started in Portsmouth and is due to complete next year.
