Project specificationDownload specification
The Queen Elizabeth Class supercarriers are a two-ship class of aircraft carrier being built for the Royal Navy. The first, HMS Queen Elizabeth, is expected to enter service in 2020 and HMS Prince of Wales will follow in 2022.
These ships, at 284 metres long, will displace about 65,600 tonnes (full load) and be capable of carrying up to 40 aircrafts.
Scope of work
We are responsible to develop the detail design (coordination) of the HVAC for Damage Control Zones 4 and 5 (half of the vessel). Our work consists of developing the manufacturing drawings, the installation drawings (3D) and also reviewing the design for improvement. Further, we are making 3D detail design of ten ATU rooms, including penetrations, foundation and bill of materials.
Modules of the vessels are being built in three different locations before assembly in one place. This places a high demand on coordination and cooperation between the subcontractor’s quality systems. We are working in cooperation with one of the world’s largest HVAC Installation companies, Imtech, under high level Military Security.
The detailed design is performed in 3D using Foran software for DCZ4, DCZ5 and AutoCAD, MagiCAD software for ATU rooms.
Estimated work period: 4 years, approx. 35,000 hours.
