Last of the Type 45 class pushes out for second stage sea trials

 

    DUNCAN, the sixth and final Type 45 destroyer built by BAE Systems, has today set sail from the company’s Scotstoun shipyard on the Clyde to embark on her second stage sea trials off the west coast of Scotland.

 

    During the next 19 days at sea, DUNCAN will undertake an extensive program of trials, including final testing of the ship’s power and propulsion, combat systems, navigational and communications equipment ahead of her handover to the Royal Navy in March next year.

 

    Jennifer Osbaldestin, Type 45 Program Director at BAE Systems, said: “Today marks a significant achievement in what has been a highly successful Type 45 program as the final ship embarks on her sea trials. The team has worked tirelessly to put DUNCAN to sea to demonstrate her outstanding capabilities and there is a real sense of pride at reaching this milestone.

 

    “The effective partnering between industry, the Royal Navy and the Ministry of Defense has been key to the success of this program and will continue to drive DUNCAN towards Acceptance off Contract in March, when all six Type 45 destroyers will have been delivered to the Royal Navy.”
