HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH returned to HM Naval Base Portsmouth on 14 February after successfully completing her operational activities.
Between January and December 2019, HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH was scheduled for 24 weeks of maintenance; this included her planned dry-docking period in Rosyth. She underwent no additional days of maintenance while alongside. Maintenance work on individual ship systems takes place during both these scheduled periods alongside and operational deployments. Information on maintenance conducted while deployed is not collated centrally.
We do not disclose the materiel states of individual ships for operational security reasons, as this would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
