BRITAIN’s leading civilian shipbuilding industry is gearing up for the construction of the groundbreaking Type26 frigates for the Royal Navy and countries around the world.
BAE Systems is building the first batch of eight Type 26 frigates at its Govan shipyard on the River Clyde site. The construction of these warships, also known as the City Class frigates, is a “generational” opportunity, according to Steve Timms, BAE’s head of naval ships, as their design is one of the most advanced in the world. Mr Timms added: “The Type 26 is the first significant warship programme to depart from the tradition to design ships with drawings.
And shipyard workers can plan how they will physically build the vessels, getting to know each detail and component by simply navigating the virtual ship.
Mr Timms said: “This system has played a big part in selling the design abroad.
“We’ve had visits from foreign navies and they can see the benefits of being able to change things quickly and to their own specifications.”
Type 26 programme director Nadia Savage revealed the design of the ship is three-quarters complete.
As much as 50 percent of its components has been committed to manufacturing and 35 percent of the ship is in construction on the site’s huge riverside halls, Ms Savage said.
She also said the 3D model sold the vessels as, unlike a paper model, it allows customers to have a realistic idea of what they are to buy.
She said: “This isn’t a paper ship with lots of ramifications still to happen, this is a mature digital model that allows us and our customers to move forward with confidence.”
The Govan shipyard counts approximately 3,000 members of staff and takes on about 100 apprentices a year - with many young people considering a start to their career at BAE a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Govan造船厂拥有约3000名员工，每年还会招收约100名学徒工 — 很多想要得到生平中仅有的插手BAE3分赛车机遇的年青人会思量在这里开始他们的职业生活。
One said: “My dad and grandfather worked here.
“This is 20 years’ work and whatever follows on from that.”

That is what we should be doing, training our own people and building our own ships and planes!
Are you listening "MRS MAY!
Here in Boris land we are now optimistic, and , out of EU Colditz.
Mrs May is now an irrelevance, but if she was still in power, then no she would not be listening and she would not want to listen.
Too late for May pal. And remember she’s part of the Eu anyway. See our whole defence capability. Couldn’t stop an Iranian fast boat.
Bang on, do politicians ever listen, they think they know the lot, in-fact they know very little!
Once Sturgeon delivers SNEXIT (Scottish Nationalists Exit from the UK), they can look forward to these jobs being relocated to the UK.
There won't BE a UK - the UK is a unx between Scotland and England. If Scotland goes Indy it ceases to exist...
那么连系王国就不复存在了 — 由于英国事包括苏格兰及英格兰的连系，要是苏格兰分开的话...
Good news, if only for the fact that the expertise in shipbuilding will be maintained within Great Britain. Export or Licence orders from Canada and Australia show the potential for more sales post Brexit. Well done BAe, the navy needs these new ships.
Amazing to realise that in 1945 we finished the war with 32 carriers of all sizes..... the RN Pacific Fleet had 16!!! and we started 1939 with about 5 (all due to Trenchard virtually emasculating the RNAS to form the RAF.......
