Re: Our newest Aircraft Carrier. Did the Tyne get any work
David my simple answer to that is no.Building merchant ships in this country is simply too expensive.The only facility on the Tyne still capable building is A&P and there core work is ship repair etc.A&P hopefully will get some fabrication work connected with the new warship order awarded to Babcock but that at the moment is at the design stage.Wind farm construction I think the Tyne has missed out and there is already a company in the North-East already doing this type of work down at Hartlepool.
