UK: BAE Systems Hands Over HMS Duncan

first_img UK: BAE Systems Hands Over HMS Duncan HMS Duncan, the sixth and final of the UK’s sophisticated, new class of Type 45 Destroyers, has been formally handed over to the Royal Navy by shipbuilder BAE Systems, the MOD announced todayThe 7,500 tonne vessel, armed with the world-leading Sea Viper missile defence system, sailed to her new home in Portsmouth where she will undergo a series of trials and tests before being declared suitable for operations next year. Her arrival at the Naval Base marks the end of a successful 12 year build programme to provide the Royal Navy with a fleet of the largest and most powerful air defence destroyers it has ever received.Minister for Defence, Equipment, Support and Technology, Philip Dunne said:“The arrival of HMS Duncan in Portsmouth today marks the culmination of the Type 45 programme with the UK shipping industry to provide the Royal Navy with a fleet of world class destroyers.“Together these vessels are a formidable force and will play an important part in allowing the Royal Navy to protect our interests wherever needed around the world.”Head of the Ship Support Alliance for the MOD’s Defence, Equipment and Support Organisation, Commodore John Newell said:“This achievement represents the end of a huge amount of work by both the MOD and BAE Systems and I am delighted that all six ships are now in the hands of the Royal Navy and will soon be ready for deployment wherever that may be.”Commander James Stride, HMS Duncan’s Commanding Officer, said:“My team of Royal Navy personnel have been ‘standing-by’ the build of the ship since the launch in October 2010 and the numbers have now grown to the full complement of 180 men and women who are all now focussed on preparing for our sea training and trials phase under the White Ensign, prior to joining our sister ships on operations around the globe.”The first Type 45, HMS Daring, arrived in Portsmouth in January 2009.

Gallery: HMS Daring Leaves Sydney, Australia

first_img Gallery: HMS Daring Leaves Sydney, Australia View post tag: Naval Share this article View post tag: Navy View post tag: Australia View post tag: Daring Training & Education HMS Daring has left Australia’s largest city after a week in the spotlight taking part in the country’s centennial celebrations of its navies.On a rather gloomy spring day, tugs helped the 8,500-tonne destroyer under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and past the equally-famous Opera House as vessels attending the International Fleet Review departed.Darings leaves Sydney with plaudits from Britain’s High Commissioner Paul Madden – in Commonwealth countries, the equivalent of an ambassador – who says the Royal Australian Navy’s 100th birthday has been supported “in style”.The Portsmouth-based destroyer is officially 49 per cent of her way through her global deployment – the first by a Type 45, and the first visit to Australia by the RN’s new breed of air defence ships.Since arriving in Sydney last Friday, Daring has taken part in two ceremonial reviews – the first recreated the entry by the inaugural RAN Fleet in 1913, the second was a more traditional fleet review witnessed by Prince Harry – services of commemoration for Australian sailors killed in the line of duty and a parade through the heart of Sydney with 4,000 seafarers from around the world.Mr Madden says all the Royal Navy’s participants in the week-long events in Sydney had been a credit to the country.“Britain turned out in style to support the event,” he stressed.“The Band of HM Royal Marines drew many admiring glances as they marched through the streets of Sydney on parade with 4,000 sailors.“Their musicianship and the precision of their drill demonstrated clearly why they are generally held to be the best military band in the world.”Daring hosted various receptions for business and political leaders in Sydney and Melbourne and will do the same in Adelaide, and welcomed a lot of media aboard – resulting in considerable coverage for the RN Down Under.“HMS Daring was busy all week. We really took advantage of having such a splendid Royal Navy asset in town,” Mr Madden added.He spent two days aboard the Type 45 sailing into Sydney Harbour when the ship arrived – “a spectacular experience” – and was impressed by the “seamanship and camaraderie” of the 200-plus sailors aboard.Among the more symbolic acts of Daring’s stay in New South Wales was the return of a plaque which once hung in Sydney’s Admiralty House.At a special reception aboard the Type 45, Britain’s most senior sailor First Sea Lord Admiral Sir George Zambellas and Jonathan Perceval-Maxwell, the great grandson of Admiral Sir George King-Hall – regarded as the father of the RAN – presented the ‘Admiral’s Office Australia’ plaque to Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, today’s head of the Commonwealth nation’s Navy.The plaque was affixed to Admiralty House during Britain’s command at the Australia Station and spent a century in the UK after Admiral Sir George King-Hall, the last British Commander-in-Chief of the Australia Station in 1913, returned with it to England when the Royal Navy departed Australia.At the request of Sir George King-Hall’s family, the plaque, carved from a single block of wood, was returned to the Royal Australian Navy.[mappress]Press Release, October 14, 2013; Image: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Gallery: HMS Daring Leaves Sydney, Australia center_img View post tag: HMS View post tag: Leaves October 14, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Defence View post tag: Sydneylast_img read more

View post tag: Navy The ship on commissioning will join Eastern Naval Command at Vizag, the sword arm of Indian Navy.RAdm (Retd.) Shekhar Mital NM, CMD GSL in his message said “This warship is the culmination of many years of in-house design development and ship build techniques. The commissioning of this ship, marks a significant milestone in GSL’s & nation’s march towards indigenization and self reliance. It becomes more important as Sumedha is 200th ship indigenously built by GSL. GSL is the only yard which has delivered four classes of OPVs to both Navy and Coast Guard. Successive projects have witnessed considerable improvement, bringing applaud from users to Shipyard.”CMD further said “Yard is now undertaking massive modernisation at an outlay of Rs. 700 Crores, of which Rs. 400 Crores has already been spent. Yard is near ready to take on construction of new MCMV project, which will provide major push to Naval mine sweeping capabilities”.INS ‘Sumedha’ is the third of the new 105 meter class of NOPV and the largest ship constructed by GSL for the Indian Navy. This state of the art ship will help meet the increasing requirement of the Indian Navy for undertaking ocean surveillance and surface warfare operations in order to prevent infiltration and transgression of maritime sovereignty. This ship is suitable for monitoring sea lanes of communication, defence of offshore oil installations and other critical offshore national assets. The ship can also be deployed for escorting high value ships and fleet support operations.The first and second of the series of new NOPV, INS SARYU and SUNAYNA were earlier handed over to the Indian Navy by GSL on 21 December 2012 and 02 September 2013 respectively.It will be recalled that Shore Based Test Facility(SBTF) meant for landing trials of MIG 29K & LCA, built by GSL at INS Hansa is also ready for commissioning. This is a unique and only facility created by GSL in Asia and third in the world. The facility has already been used for training of naval pilots for landing onboard Vikramaditya.[mappress]Press Release, March 4, 2014, 2014; Image: Goa Shipyard March 4, 2014center_img View post tag: commissioning Share this article View post tag: News by topic Industry news INS Sumedha Ready for Commissioning View post tag: INSlast_img read more
