RFA Fort Victoria Refit

We recently worked closely with Cammell Laird on their £49.5m refit of the Royal Fleet Auxilary (RFA) combined fleet supply ship, RFA Fort Victoria, one of the largest vessels operated by the British Ministry of Defence at 31,000 tonnes.

The main highlight of the refit was the installation of a double-hull which will improve Fort Victoria to achieve international compliance, plus upgrades to allow her to better replenish and support the new Queen Elizabeth class carriers. These upgrades continue plans to keep the vessel in service until the late 2020’s.

Cammell Laird were looking for a supplier who could provide a complete set of replacement level transmitters and we were delighted to win the project, mainly due to our ICT transmitter having a proven track record on other Ministry of Defence vessels and by other navies around the world.

We worked closely with the Cammell Laird Design Engineering team to develop a solution that had minimal reworking of the existing installation arrangements and allowed for the current electrical cabling to be reused to minimise cost and installation time.

The massive refit which took 10 months and is the largest undertaken by Cammell Laird and saw over 450 men employed on the project, was completed on time and on budget, largely down to meticulous planning by all parties.
