HMS Vengeance and Harland & Wolff Business Partnership
The Friends of HMS Vengeance to date is all about partnerships and a
major player in the world's industries, Harland & Wolff is being invited
to discuss in joining us in saving the VENGEANCE and hopefully assisting
in the Vengeance Naval Aviation Heritage Museum venture.
The shipbuilding company of Harland & Wolff stands on Belfast´s
River Lagan, built on land reclaimed from the river. It was one of the
largest shipyards in the world. Harland & Wolff's most famous project
was the legendary Titanic, her sister ship Olympic and in 1907 saw the
launch of two new Cunard ships, Lusitania and her sister Mauretania. The
company has been involved in building 14 of our wartime aircraft carriers
including HMS Glorious in 1915, HMS Formidable in 1937, HMS Eagle in 1942
and HMS Bulwark in 1944.
Harland & Wolff will also contribute to the future heritage of naval
aviation, taking part in the future aircraft carrier (CVF) project of the
Royal Navy to build two new carriers. At 40-50,000 tonnes, the two new
carriers will be twice the size of the existing Invincible-class carriers,
and twice the size of the former HMS Vengeance. BAE Systems leads a team
with Harland and Wolff and Rolls Royce which have been awarded contracts
by the MoD defence procurement executive to study the three alternative
configurations - CTOL, STOVL and STOBAR - and key ship technologies. The
prime contractor selection will be made in 2004 with an in-service date
of 2012. The second ship should enter service in 2015.
