Babcock International has successfully completed the refit of HMS Penzance minehunter vessel at Babcock’s Rosyth site in Fife.

HMS Penzance – one of the Royal Navy’s Sandown class minehunters – underwent a 10 month docking period at Rosyth. The refit included the replacement of both main engines, multiple Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) repairs and Addition and Alteration (A&A) packages.

A team of over 50 Babcock employees made up of electrical, mechanical, engineering, joinery and GRP shipwright resource delivered the work – alongside specialist 
sub-contractors.

After passing the Ready for Sea inspection on schedule, HMS Penzance returned to her home port, HMNB Clyde, with full operational capability.

The second of the Royal Navy minehunter flotilla, HMS Pembroke has arrived at Babcock’s Rosyth facility to undergo a similar package of work.

Sean Donaldson, Managing Director of the Babcock Rosyth site, said: “We were delighted to work on the upgrade of HMS Penzance and look forward to working on HMS Pembroke.”

He added: “Our Common User Facility at Rosyth is home to one of the largest waterside manufacturing and repair facilities in the UK. This, alongside our skilled and experienced workforce with their commitment to innovation and quality, ensures that we offer the complete package for visiting ships.”
