10 Mar 2020
Pictured here are SEA team of Apprentices, Graduates and Engineers that supported the ‘Celebration Of UK Engineering Excellence’ on board HMS Prince of Wales.
The Royal Navy event was a celebration of the engineering achievements and national endeavours of those that contributed to the delivery of the Queen Elizabeth-class carrier programme.
SEA is proud to have contributed towards the HMS Prince of Wales, one of the most powerful surface warships ever constructed in the UK. Along with her sister ship HMS Queen Elizabeth, they are the largest ships ever built for the Royal Navy.
Captain John Bonnar, the Royal Navy’s Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff for Engineering Support said: “The construction of HMS Prince of Wales and her sister ship HMS Queen Elizabeth was one of the most impressive engineering endeavours the Royal Navy has ever seen. Thousands of engineers from across the country were involved in building them. We were thrilled to see so many young engineers of the future on board the ship to meet with the UK’s best and brightest who helped build these carriers. These engineers will see the results of their hard work helping keep Britain safe for years to come.”
We were delighted to welcome UK Minister of State for Defence Procurement, Jeremy Quin MP to our stand to discuss our innovative defence capabilities and demonstrate how we are committed to developing future engineering talent.
