Overview of Business Unit          

Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.

Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.

We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year

Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers
