Carriers take step forward.
The Ministry of Defence has signed KBR to supervise the building of the Royal Navy's two new aircraft carriers.
A third of the fabrication work on the two carriers is expected to be carried out at Swan Hunter, in Wallsend, and the programme will see the yard increase its work force to 3,000 when work begins in 2008.
The yard has been waiting on news from the Government on the project's integrator since Christmas.
