Rolls-Royce expands Canadian facility

18th February 2020 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rolls-Royce has broken ground on a new expansion to its Centre of Excellence for Naval Handling equipment in Peterborough, Ontario, in Canada.

The site will be home to the design and manufacture facility for the Mission Bay Handling System (MBHS) for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC), Australian Hunter class and UK Royal Navy Type 26 programmes, all based on the Global Combat Ship design.

The MBHS is designed to launch and recover naval vehicles and move containerised packages without the aid of a dockside crane. The multi-functional system can also be easily adapted to support custom operational requirements, such as humanitarian missions, by providing the space for medical facilities and aid supplies.

Bruce Lennie, vice president, business development & government affairs, Rolls-Royce, said: ‘This centre will harness and build upon the wealth of Canadian engineering and technological expertise we have at Rolls-Royce. We look forward to growing our business in country, further developing our supply chain and enhancing our contributions to the Canadian economy.’
