New engines for HMS Brocklesby

23rd August 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has renewed the engines of HMS Brocklesby, a Hunt-class minehunter of the British Royal Navy, as part of the ship’s year-long deep maintenance period, the company announced on 23 August.

Maintenance work is being carried out within the Minor War Vessels Centre of Specialisation, part of the ship hall complex at the Portsmouth Naval Base.

The deep maintenance work on HMS Brocklesby includes the installation of new fuel-efficient Caterpillar engines, replacement of control systems and overhauling of generators to extend the ship’s service life for another 15 to 20 years. The galley will also be refurbished and upgraded, the chilled water plant will be overhauled and new propellers will be fitted.

The BAE Systems team will spend about 190,000 hours to carry out a total of 9,000 maintenance tasks, with work scheduled for completion in 2017.
