A Devon dockyard won a contract to upgrade HMS Ocean, the Royal Navy's largest amphibious warship. Improvements to accommodation on board the assault ship are expected to take a year at Plymouth's Devonport Dockyard. Work on the 21,000-ton ship is expected to start next month and, following sea trials, the ship should return to service next September. During the refit, HMS Ark Royal will stand in for HMS Ocean.
