Approved by the UK Ministry of Defence and possessing the resources, management capabilities and requisite technical expertise, Wood Group Industrial Services Limited provides access and containment systems, protective coatings services and insulation work for all types of sea going vessels, operating in both Royal Navy dockyards and commercial ship yards.
Wood Group Industrial Services, working as part of Ship Support Services Limited, is undertaking all of the surface preparation and painting work on the two new aircraft carriers being constructed for the Royal Navy; HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales. This 10 year contract is the largest naval painting project ever undertaken by our company, requiring separate project teams to be established across the UK to support the modular build philosophy adopted by our client; the Aircraft Carrier Alliance.
We also lead the way in innovative, value added work involving the application and repair of specialist naval stealth systems including radar absorbing materials and acoustic cladding materials e.g. anechoic tiles applied to submarine hulls.
The PHENICS automated recovery and ventilation system, specialist cleaning, fire sentries and FAFF crews can also be employed as part of a single source solution provided for total vessel in-service, build and re-fit requirements.
