Maritime Minister signs of £45 Million for Maintenance of UK Marine Vessels

12th December 2022

Industry and Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani has committed £45 million of finance towards sustaining the UK’s trailblazing collection of exploration ships.

The NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) granted Babcock International the funding, which is a crucial part of the UK administrations’ National Shipbuilding Strategy.

A trio of vessels that fundamentally help researchers working on topics like climate change and pollution as well as perform cutting-edge studies into our seas and polar areas will undergo upkeep and modifications.

In the UK, the shipbuilding sector provides over 40,000 individuals with employment opportunities. With this new venture, the fleet of vessels will be supported by both personnel and suppliers with strong industry expertise and knowledge.

The RRS Sir David Attenborough is a state-of-the-art polar discovery ship, which just departed on the 20th November for a six-month voyage to Antarctica. It plans to trial an innovative artificial intelligence network that will assist in determining which course should be taken to avoid the most environmental harm.

Oceanic investigation is carried out by the RRS James Cook (2006) and RRS Discovery (2013), which use a combination of scientific methodology to discover the many unknowns.

RRS James Cook will endure on its endeavours across tropical waters to the borders of ice sheets, and the RRS Discovery will travel to the Arctic to study the chemical process of nitrogen fixation.
Modern equipment, including self-directed subaquatic vessels like the National Oceanography Centre’s Boaty McBoatface, is employed by all of these ships.

One of the globes’ most advanced marine robot fleets is housed at NOC, and it provides the exploration with eco-friendly maritime observation.
