Britain’s HMS Queen Elizabeth to carry Solberg Foam
March 29, 2016
Solberg's EMEA Region Office has announced the securement of a supply contract for SOLBERG ARCTICTM 6% AFFF foam concentrate for use on Britain's newest aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. Currently being built at shipyards around the United Kingdom, HMS Queen Elizabeth and sister ship Prince of Wales are the future flagships of the United Kingdom. Initially the ships will carry helicopters. The vast flight deck and hangar can accommodate any helicopter in Britain's military inventory.
Given the size of the ship — the largest ever built for the RN — and the UK's investment in her, plus her sister HMS Prince of Wales and the F-35 jets which will fly from their decks, the Queen Elizabeth's maiden entry into Portsmouth is likely to be an event of national — and possibly international — significance.
