Specialists in solving wide-ranging engineering challenges
Equipment such as aircraft lifts, arrester gear and helicopter handling for surface ships; mast (periscope) raising equipment and hydroplane/rudder drives for submarines simply must be operational on demand.
This is achieved by combining the strengths of a creative modern engineering team with the latest developments in materials and manufacturing techniques together with a 'lifetime' of experience in the marine environment.
Surface Ship Systems
We have a history of innovation in the surface ship market such as supplying the world's biggest aircraft elevators, the world's first aircraft catapults, and the world's first aircraft arresting gear.
Our current portfolio contains a wide range of equipment, including:
UK - Since 1915, all classes of UK submarines have featured a wide range of MacTaggart Scott equipment. The latest feature MacTaggart Scott mast raising equipment, auxiliary/emergency propulsion, capstans & windlass, hydraulic power units, vent valves, and towed array handling motors.
Overseas - The US Navy is a major customer, with MacTaggart Scott equipment on all of its in-service submarines. Australia's Collins class submarine has a wide range of MacTaggart Scott equipment. In addition MacTaggart Scott equipment has been selected for the French Barracuda, Spanish S80, Swedish A26 and Korean JangBoGo III submarines.
