Google's not your friend. It is nearer a 1000, @Guns?According to google Invincible crew size figures range between 650 - 680 and CVF 680 - 700 - Im not seeing this causing a massive extra burden on manpower.
If Invinciblke MK2s were built the same problems would occur - because it relates to cuts in 2010 not ship size
Any idea what sort of tonnage per year capacity such a recommissioned plant would be capable of?They'll be making the ingots for us to roll into plates. After rolling the plates are quench and tempered which is what the plant at Clydebridge does. I see it called Q1N and NQ1 depending on who you are talking to about it. It's a pain to get right but there is good money in it.

The theoretical capacity of Clydebridge when we did the furnace upgrades a few years back with TATA was 3,100 tonnes per week (working 24/7). That's making all the various Q&T steels (RQT and Abrazo grades). Q1 by it's nature would be a very small part of that. Our main customers back in the day were JCB, Caterpillar and Joy Mining, plus we made stuff for Arcelor Mittal, Thyssen and other steel companies that they sold under their own brand. Q1 we tended to get a run on doing then nothing for ages depending on whatever BAE were doing at the time.Any idea what sort of tonnage per year capacity such a recommissioned plant would be capable of?
Actually whilst I can see how the fine people of Belfast would have taken great pride in the result of their hard work, in fact sadly to say Titanic wasn't fine when it left H&W, in fact it was almost doomed from the design stage.It was fine when it left here..
Betting on a frigate order?
