Details - Provide visual surveillance system equipment for the largest warship ever built in the UK.
The Queen Elizabeth Class is a class of two aircraft carriers of the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy of which the 65,000-tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth weighs the equivalent of 10,236 African elephants and, at 280 meters in length, is longer than the Houses of Parliament.
We were awarded the contract in 2011 by the Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA) through BAE Systems Integrated Technologies Limited to provide visual surveillance system equipment for the largest warship ever built in the UK, HMS Queen Elizabeth and her sister ship HMS Prince of Wales.
How we did it
The QEC project constitutes the largest and most important naval shipbuilding project seen in the UK for many years and has been vital for ensuring our continued success in the shipbuilding industry. By collaborating closely with the client and industrial partners, we ensured that this prestigious undertaking was delivered on time, despite the limited budget and tight turnaround times. With frugality in mind, we drove out unnecessary costs and expenses and successfully completed the work on the HMS Queen Elizabeth, which is now in service.
What we delivered
The provision of visual surveillance system equipment to the Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA).
