Cullum secured a contract to integrate the Rolls-Royce Marine Gas Turbine (MT30) into the Gas Turbine Assembly Power and Propulsion system for the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carrier programme. The contract was one of the largest orders won by the company. It covered the acoustic packaging of the MT30 and all the associated work and related equipment.


The final assembly of the MT30 Power and Propulsion system took place at our purpose-built facility in ‘land locked’ Heanor and was carried out by Cullum’s experienced and specialist engineering team.
