BAE Systems’ Barrow Shipyard Delivers Second Astute-class Submarine; John Hudson Comments

BAE-Systems-LogoIn a year that saw the second Astute-class submarine, HMS Ambush, leave Barrow shipbuilding yard in Northwest England and 280 jobs created, John Hudson, BAE Systems Maritime – Submarines managing director, said that they are hoping for another strong year in 2013, according to the NorthWest Evening Mail.

In addition to the HMS Ambush, a second Astute-class submarine, leaving the yard in September, the British government engaged in two contracts worth £1.2bn and £1.5bn, respectively for the construction of the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh Audacious ships.

Hudson said that their goal for 2013 is to fully deliver the HMS Astute and Ambush to the Royal Navy.

“I think for us, the next year will be primarily about delivering on our commitments,” Hudson said.
