Rolls-Royce Submarines Ltd
Our market-leading position in submarine propulsion systems encompasses everything from design and procurement to manufacture and in-service support. For the last 60 years we have designed, supplied and supported the nuclear propulsion plant that provides power for all of the UK Royal Navy's nuclear submarines. We’re responsible for delivering the Nuclear Steam Raising Plants (NSRP), plus parts of the secondary propulsion systems to the UK Ministry of Defence. We also manage these assets across their full lifecycle. This includes providing frontline support across the world for Royal Navy submarine reactor plant equipment from our Operations Centre in Derby. We also support the submarines when in the Barrow-in-Furness shipyard and the naval bases at Devonport and Faslane. To achieve this, we employ world class engineers from a variety of backgrounds, and similarly-skilled functional staff to provide customers with safe and timely delivery and cost-effective engineering solutions.Our engineers design and substantiate the safety of the NSRP including: reactor cores, primary systems pipework and valves, major vessels, and the electronic control systems. They also do the same for parts of the secondary equipment, including the turbo-generators and propulsors.
