Since 2002 RJD Technology have been supporting the Aircraft Carrier Alliance in providing specialist manpower to Europe’s biggest defence project – the building of the UK’s largest warships – the HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales Aircraft Carriers.
The RJD tasks have included, technical design, systems engineering and the planning of the layout and fitting of the Warship’s compartments some of which we handed over to her crew in a ceremony held in Rosyth this month.
Allan Smith, the lead of this area of the ship, said: “This is a very proud day for everyone in the Alliance. There have been hundreds of people in every conceivable trade working on these compartments – from the time they were a part of Lower Block 03 being built in Glasgow to the fit-out and commissioning phases here in Rosyth.
“Compartments would normally be handed over after sea trials, so to achieve this at such an early stage, to the high quality and specification required by the Royal Navy, is a very significant milestone for the team.”
