A&P and Cammell Laird win deal to work on UK’s Type 26 frigates
A&P and Cammell Laird have secured contracts from BAE Systems for the production of components for the Royal Navy's Type 26 frigates. These advanced anti-submarine warfare vessels are currently under construction at BAE Systems' facility in Govan, Scotland, with contributions from both A&P and Cammell Laird. A&P Tyne, boasting the largest fabrication facilities on the east coast of England, has successfully manufactured four lower units for the third ship, HMS Belfast, which were delivered earlier this year. Meanwhile, Cammell Laird is responsible for crafting units for the fourth ship, HMS Birmingham, and will also play a crucial role in assembling these units together.
