RFA Fort Rosalie Contract Awarded to A&P Tyne

June 18, 2002

A&P Tyne has won the latest refit contract involving ships operated by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) - to carry out the 4-month refit of the fleet supply vessel RFA Fort Rosalie in their Wallsend yard. The contract from the U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD), which will began on June 15, has secured 500 jobs for the duration of the refit. This contract follows the recent successful refit and repairs carried out aboard the RFA Fort Victoria, which also drydocked at A&P Tyne earlier this year. While in dry dock and alongside the repair berth, the RFA Fort Rosalie will undergo a major repair program including rudder repairs, an extensive painting program, various surveys including cranes and lifting equipment, conversion of cargo hold bulk storage area, overhaul of main engines and generators, refurbishment of accommodation areas, cargo lift surveys and repairs, replenishment at sea (RAS) equipment and electrical equipment repairs. Other work to be carried out includes upgrades to communications, the engine room crane, cargo plant and the ship's domestic power supply. Fred Newman, managing director of A&P Tyne said: “We are delighted that the MOD have endorsed our past performance on RFA vessels by awarding us the contract for RFA Fort Rosalie"
