Building underway for biggest ships ever built for Royal Navy

LIVERPOOL's Birkenhead marine and engineering company Cammell Laird has completed its first centre blocks for the 65,000-ton aircraft carrier Prince of Wales, the biggest ship ever built for the Royal Navy, the company announced. 

The fabricated and outfitted two blocks for the new carriers are being transported by sea to the Rosyth shipyard in Scotland by barge pulled by ocean-going tug over four or five days.

Construction of the blocks began in July 2013 with Cammell Laird playing a key role in the project, the biggest British engineering project since the Olympics.

The carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales will be nearly three times the size of the current Invincible-class carriers.
