Imtech has been awarded a design & build contract for the high-tech climate technology aboard the new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers being built for the British Royal Navy. The order represents a value of more than about $187m. The ships, which are 918.6 ft long, are the largest naval ships ever to be built in the UK.

The two aircraft carriers are about 65,000 tons each, a size between the American Nimitz class and the French Charles de Gaulle class. The high-tech design and build order is a direct order from Babcock Marine, a member of the Aircraft Carrier Alliance. The order comprises a total solution for the technical design, engineering, equipment, supply, installation and set-up of all HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) on board both of the ships. The order was awarded to the German business unit Imtech Schiffbau-/Dockbautechnik. A sizeable share of the activities will be performed in co-operation with the English business unit Imtech Marine UK, which recently has executed several other projects for the British Royal Navy. Both business units are part of the Imtech Marine Group, Imtech’s marine division. The ships are being built at five English shipyards with final assembly at Rosyth, Scotland. HMS Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to enter service by 2016 and HMS Prince of Wales will follow two years later.
