Saving HMS Alliance - April news

Written by Bill Sainsbury on Monday, 22 April 2013. Posted in Blog


The rebuild process is well under way and our Project Manager Jason is delighted by the quality of the steelwork restoration. Twenty sections of aluminium casing along the top of the submarine are currently being reinstalled ready for the final repainting of the entire submarine in the next few weeks. It promises to be quite a sight for visitors when the covers come down at the end of June.








We have now started the painstaking conservation of the internal areas through a detailed programme of corrosion treatment, deep-clean, repair and refurbishment. This work will run through until early 2014. The biggest challenge is undertaking the work whilst maintaining public access to the submarine. On the plus side, it’s clearly something very different for visitors to see and there is plenty of questions and interest being shown. 

The photos are showing progress this month as the rebuild is under way with the casing going back on and spraying of the internal tanks well progressed.
