Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier case study:
Ruling the waves: In 2007, by working with the Aircraft Carrier Alliance and Lloyd’s Register, Tata Steel metallurgists were able to create and deliver two new steel grades which allowed the design team on the Royal Navy’s Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier to eliminate design challenges, balancing performance-in-use with manufacturability. Tata Steel along with Dent Steel have partnered BAE Systems in supplying the vast majority of their steel requirements for this project.
With a proactive programme in research and development, Tata Steel are looking to explore potential collaborations in design efficiency, fabrication cost, reducing through life maintenance and performance enhancement.
Joining the SSA stand at Seawork International 2014, representatives from Tata Steel will be happy to discuss how they can work with customers, designers and specifiers to understand design requirements and achieve mutually beneficial product usage.
