Britain’s fleet of Trident submarines is a key element in NATO’s defence of the free world. These nuclear-powered vessels, the most potent weapon ever built, spend many months at sea permanently ready to respond to a direct military threat. Aboard Trident and aboard non-nuclear submarines and surface vessels, vital electrical machinery produced by Piller Power Sytems can be found providing unfaultering service in some of the most demanding conditions imaginable, whilst ashore Piller has provided shore-to-ship power systems since 1965.
Highly specialised naval dockyard cranes built by Stothert & Pitt and overhead cranes from Wellman Booth are deployed for loading weapons systems - including up to 16 nuclear warheads aboard Trident. Engineering support subsidiary Clarke Chapman Facilities Management backs this up with a bespoke facilities management service helping to ensure that when Trident is called to duty, she is ready, willing and able to respond.
Elsewhere in the military arena, as in every commercial Airbus built, Claudius Peters stringers are also to be found in the A400 military transporter, whilst Piller ground power systems provide essential ground power necessary to enable airborne a whole array of military aircratft, including the President of the United States’ personal plane, Airforce One.
