Description: VT is building the bow sections, funnels and masts for all the six Type 45 destroyers so far ordered, working under sub contract to prime contractor BAE Systems.

The 1000 tonnes steel bow structure was carefully lifted on transporters, moved out of the main assembly hall at VT Shipbuilding's Portsmouth Ship Factory and manoeuvred onto keel blocks positioned on a barge moored in the adjoining basin at Portsmouth Naval Base.

VT Group plc is the British defence and services public limited company formerly known as Vosper Thornycroft. Founded by a merger between Vosper and Thornycroft in 1966, its original business was shipbuilding. It has since diversified into various engineering services.

The Type 45 Anti-Air Warfare Destroyer will provide the backbone of the Royal Navy's air defence fleet until 2040 and beyond. It is a versatile warship that will provide unprecedented detection and defensive capability, efficiency and living standards when the first of class, HMS Daring, comes into service in 2009.

BAE Systems is the prime contractor for the multi-billion pound Type 45 programme, which is engaging hundreds of companies from across UK industry and beyond.
