Orchard Materials has a wealth of experience in supplying high integrity metals to suit a wide range of Naval & Marine applications. This includes metals used in several submarine builds and re-fits such as the Astute, Collins, Victoria, Navantia S80, Trafalgar and Vanguard class. We are also actively involved with the future Successor programme and the Marine Underwater Future Capability programme.
A wide range of Duplex, Super Duplex and Nickel Alloy products has also been supplied for use on Type 45 Destroyers as well as the materials used in the weapons handling and discharge systems on board both naval ships and submarines.
Orchard is often involved in supplying requirements for specialist marine applications, a recent example of which was the high strength metal for the anchoring of the 93 metre high mast of the luxury ocean going yacht, the Mirabella V.
