HMS Brocklesby (M33), one of the Royal Navy’s eight Hunt-class minehunters, has had her engines renewed after 33 years of service. In addition to the installation of the new Caterpillar engines, the deep maintenance work on HMS Brocklesby by BAE Systems includes replacing control systems and overhauling generators in order to extend her service life for another 15 to 20 years.

The ship’s crew will also benefit from upgrades and refurbishment to the galley. The deep maintenance period of HMS Brocklesby is scheduled for completion in 2017.
