Nuttall sails into Rosyth dock

Nuttall has taken a £35 million deal to prepare the Rosyth Docks in Fife for the building of two new aircraft carriers.

The contact has been awarded by Babcock Marine which is building the 65,000 tonne vessels HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.

Under the deal Nuttall will modify existing dry docks at the shipyard as part of a £50 million upgrade programme before work gets underway on the ships.

Nuttall chief executive Martin Rogers said: “We are understandably delighted to have secured this major package of work, extending a long standing and successful relationship between Nuttall and Babcock at Rosyth. We are looking forward now to starting work on site."
