Score Group at Peterhead were delight to host a delegation from the Royal Navy at a lecture in front of 180 mechanical engineering apprentices on Monday, March 14.

The presentation kicked off with an internal safety moment on the subject of understanding the centre of gravity during lifting operations.

This was followed by an in-depth presentation on the defence of the United Kingdom with key information on the capabilities and responsibilities of the Royal Navy.

This included information on the opportunities available within the reserved forces.

The event concluded with a question and answer session and vote of thanks on behalf of the company.

Commenting on the event, Conrad Ritchie managing director Score Europe said: Today we were humbled to be visited by the Royal Navy.

“Our company is well established as a naval contractor and is involved at the coal face in relation to the valve supply actuation testing and technical innovation within the most modern vessels in the fleet including the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier currently under construction at Rosyth.

“I know that our trainee pool appreciate such visits as their minds are expanded during the process and this helps them grow their understand of today’s modern and at times unsettled world,” he added.

Last month Score became the first big employer in the region to sign the Armed Forces Covenant to seal a strategic partnership with the Ministry of Defence.

The Covenant was signed on February 1 by Score Group chairman, Charles Ritchie, and countersigned by Lieutenant Colonel Gordon Mackenzie of the 51st Infantry Brigade.
