Three UK-based companies have won subcontracts worth more than £80m to supply equipment to the Royal Navy’s two future Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, which are currently under construction.
The sub-contracts cover the supply of insulation, communications and water treatment systems.
Glasgow-based Ticon Ltd
The contract comprises the Tactical, Command and Control Voice System (TC2V) used for internal communication within the ship and the High Frequency (HF) system used for long range communications with other platforms and ashore.
In a deal worth £1m, Bradford-based Ormandy Group will deliver equipment for treating and supplying hot and cold fresh water to the ships’ accommodation areas.
The hull sections have been under construction since December last year.
Once in service, each ship will hold approximately 1500 crew.
