'Built with pride in Barrow' - the latest piece of Dreadnought makes a move

July 6, 2020 - The  Dreadnought programme is one of the most complex engineering projects ever undertaken and employs more than 7,000 people across industry and MOD, with thousands more in the supply chain.

The unit was the first to make use of new material designed to improve protection for submarine sections as they are moved around the site during construction.

Four Dreadnought-Class submarines will be built in Barrow to replace the Vanguard-Class that are currently in service with the Royal Navy. HMS Dreadnought, the first of the new fleet, is scheduled to be delivered in the early 2030s.
