The Submarine Dismantling Project (SDP) is developing a cost model to inform its planning for the disposal of 27 of the UK's nuclear submarines. The scope of the SDP covers past and current classes, excluding the Astute class, but the project's cost modelling work is intended to inform the development of similar costs for the Astute class. Accordingly, it is not yet possible to provide estimated costs for the Astute class.
