The Royal Fleet Auxiliary

1st November 2017

Construction is underway of 4 new tankers for The Royal Fleet Auxiliary. Once complete the tankers will be shipped to A&P Falmouth where they are to be fitted out with equipment and weapon systems. The pre-existing fire-fighting equipment lockers will be upgraded to purpose built, heavy duty Jo Bird roller shutter cabinets, with each vessel carrying 12 cabinets. Completion of the project expected by June this year. In addition to these roller shutter cabinets, Jo Bird & Co. provide The Royal Fleet Auxiliary with lifejacket chests, fire extinguisher cabinets and damage control cabinets. The latter being made from a mixture of composites, aluminium and stainless steel.
