Rolls-Royce has broken ground on a new expansion to its Centre of Excellence for Naval Handling equipment in Canada.

Design and manufacture of the Rolls-Royce Mission Bay Handling System (MBHS) will take place inside the new facility in Peterborough, Ontario.

The MBHS is a feature of the Global Combat Ship design, selected for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC), Australian Hunter Class and UK Type 26 programs.

The Canadian Federal Government has already selected the Global Combat Ship design for the Royal Canadian Navy’s 15 new CSC ships.

Bruce Lennie, Rolls-Royce, vice president, business development and government affairs said: "We are pleased to welcome Minister Monsef, MPP Smith and Mayor Therrien to mark this significant milestone in developing our infrastructure which will support the Canadian Surface Combatant program.

"This centre will harness and build upon the wealth of Canadian engineering and technological expertise we have at Rolls-Royce.

"We look forward to growing our business in country, further developing our supply chain and enhancing our contributions to the Canadian economy."

Rolls-Royce employs more than 1,000 people across five facilities in cities including Montreal, Ottawa and Peterborough.
