HMS Endurance for Falmouth

Friday, March 12, 2004
UK’s A&P Group has won an important multi-million pound sterling Ministry of Defence (MoD) contract to refit the Royal Navy’s Ice Patrol Ship HMS Endurance at its Falmouth shipyard. The contract will run between 14th June and 1st October 2004. A&P Falmouth Commercial Director David Daniel said: “This contract was won against very tough competition. For the Group it is a major breakthrough into Royal Navy work as it is the first RN ship contract to be awarded to a commercial shipyard for over a decade.”

Refit work onboard HMS Endurance will include complete hull blasting and re-painting, general refit work, steelwork and the overhaul of main engines and auxiliary equipment. The 1990 built HMS Endurance, formerly the Polar Circle, is heading back to the UK from her annual deployment to the Antarctic. The refit will run from mid-June until October.

A&P Falmouth has just completed a four month long refit to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary RFA Argus. Managing director Peter Child said: “A&P Falmouth is becoming a centre of excellence for MoD work with the RFA and now we have won our first Royal Navy vessel.”
