Event description
Join Captain Iain Greenlees for this webinar on Preparing for HMS Queen Elizabeth.

About this Event

The presentation will explore all aspects of developing Portsmouth Naval Base to be able to support the Queen Elizabeth Class carriers, the largest ships ever operated by the Royal Navy. It will focus on the construction challenges associated with adapting the inherited legacy of 18th & 19th century infrastructure to delivering 21st century support at their home base and around the world. In particular, it will explore the technical, environmental and archaeological challenges in the largest dredge ever undertaken by the MoD required to provide operational access for the carriers to and from the sea.
