Babcock has begun a five month-long support period (docking) (SP(D)) upgrade work on the UK Royal Navy’s newest Sandown Class single role minehunter, HMS Shoreham, in Scotland, UK.

The programme includes a substantial maintenance package along with a number of upgrades aimed to improve the ship’s operational capability.

Additional upgrades include work on the air conditioning plant, sea water cooling systems, fitting of a chloropac dosing system and a resitting of 5t of ballast.

HMS Shoreham is the second single-role minehunter to receive the defence information infrastructure (future) (DII(F)), which will enable information sharing and cooperation across the defence sector network.
