Devonport Dockyard | Plymouth | PL2 2BG


It is ever more important for the UK maritime industry supply chain to be fully aware of the capabilities of the UK shipyards around the country. To this end a series of shipyard visits is being arranged so that companies can thereby become acquainted with the infrastructure that has been developed in each shipyard as well as its current and future programme of work. Babcock International Group have agreed to host a visit to Devonport dockyard and the adjacent naval base.

Programme for the visit:

The dockyard is a restricted site and the visit will start from the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Plymouth Hoe where the group will be collected by coach at 1130 for the journey to the dockyard. This is necessary to facilitate passing the whole group through security at the dockyard gate.

Parking for private cars cannot be made available in the dockyard or at the dockyard gate car park and visitors should park their cars in the hotel car park or adjacent to the hotel.

A sandwich lunch will be provided and will be followed by a briefing of the current work programme by the Babcock senior management and a subsequent a tour of the dockyard and naval base.

On completion of the visit at approximately 1600, transport will be provided to return visitors to the Crowne Plaza Hotel.


The visit will take place on Wednesday 14 November 2018 and industry delegates are invited to register from 1100 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Plymouth Hoe.

The visit is open to UK nationals only and delegates must provide their passport numbers beforehand and show photographic identification on registering at the hotel.

Industry representatives, especially from SMEs, who are involved in the many aspects of the shipbuilding and ship-refitting supply chains, procurement, marketing products and services, are strongly urged to attend.
