UK: HMS Pembroke Heads to Sea Trials

HMS Pembroke Heads to Sea Trials
HMS PEMBROKE

The Royal Navy’s Sandown Class Minehunter HMS Pembroke left Babcock Shipyard in Rosyth and headed for sea trials having undergone a support period.

 

Babcock upgraded the ship’s operational capability, sustainability, and habitability standards.

The Defence Information Infrastructure (DII) has been upgraded, along with the ship’s high-pressure air system and remote isolation of the waste water system.

The ship is one of seven Sandown-class minehunters based in Scotland. The hull and large amounts of their superstructure are built from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), ensuring a strong non-magnetic ship, fit to survive the shocks associated with minehunting activities.

The work has been completed in time, without delay and additional budget costs, Babcock Warships Managing Director, Mike Whalley, said.
