Power facilities for new aircraft carriers near completion

Her Majesty's Naval Base in Portsmouth is home to two thirds of the Royal Navy’s surface ships and in 2017 will welcome the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers, the biggest ships ever built for the Royal Navy, at a cost of over £3bn each. Each ship will be 65,000 tons. Facilities to power these new aircraft carriers have taken a major step forward with the delivery of a frequency converter, which will play a major part in providing the ships with enough electricity to power a small town.
