Polham Controls Ltd is an approved MOD (N) supplier (ref: KA338) and has been involved in the design and manufacture of specialist equipment for a large number of prestigious projects for HM Royal Navy such as the T23 Frigates and T45 Destroyers; Trafalgar and Astute Class Submarines, L.P.D., R.F.A. and A.O.R. Vessels.
PCL has been involved in the design and manufacture of Marine Switchgear for many years. We have worked on many surface vessels for the British Navy, as well as many overseas navies. As well as building the initial product, PCL has continued support for these vessels even when they have been sold to other countries, this includes in the supply of spares and the updating of the vessel’s systems. We are proud to have supplied components for Type 22 and 23 Frigates, mine sweepers, patrol boats and now some of the Navy’s newest projects including Type 45 Destroyer and the new Aircraft Carriers.
PCL has also supplied key equipment for submarines such as the Victoria Class, which is now owned by the Canadian Navy, and our own hi-tech Astute Class Hunter Submarines.
Our work for the MOD demands that, as part of our ISO 9000 commitment, we offer full traceability of components and assembly tools used. Much of the equipment we build has demanding production parameters, as it needs to operate at 30G with minimal risk to safety in the event of fire necessitating the use of low fire hazard (LFH) cable and ducting.
This involvement is ongoing with Polham currently involved in the design and manufacture of numerous pieces of equipment for the type 45 Destroyer and is also involved in design solutions for the CVF project.
