Lloyd’s Surveys Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Senior management from BVT - a joint venture between BAE Systems and VT Group - the Ministry of Defence and Lloyd's Register met in Lloyd's Register’s London Boardroom to sign a contract for survey during construction of the Royal Navy’s two new aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.
 
Under the contract, Lloyd’s Register EMEA will perform the surveys required to assign the selected class notations from Lloyd’s Register’s Naval Ship Rules.
 
The signatures of Richard Sadler, Lloyd’s Register’s Chief Executive and David Goodfellow, Shipbuild Director for the Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA), formally completed the deal, which will see Lloyd’s Register EMEA help the project assure the implementation of the design standards and establish consistent safety and technical requirements for the organisations involved, across multiple sites in the UK.
 
Richard Sadler, Lloyd's Register’s Chief Executive said “It is Lloyd's Register that has pioneered the concept of naval class, and in doing so we have created something quite unique in the construction of naval ships. So it is a great pleasure for us to sign this agreement today. Not only will this project be the biggest naval project we have engaged in, but probably the biggest in Lloyd's Register’s history.”
