RFA Fort Austin

Project outline:

RFA Fort Austin is a Primary Casualty Receiving Ship (PCRS). She has a fully equipped 100-bed medical complex on board, with over 40 different medical and surgical specialties, and is manned by personnel drawn from the MOD Hospital Units and Royal Marine Band Service. A complete galley refurbishment was required. On this project, IDL were sub-contracted to Harris Pye, marine specialists, who managed the overall contract and carried out the fabrication works. The work was carried out whilst the ship was docked at the Camell Laird Yard in Birkenhead.
