Under current planning assumptions HMS Swiftsure, as the demonstrator submarine, will allow the Submarine Dismantling Project to define and refine initial dismantling and recycling processes by Quarter one of 2022 and inform future contractual arrangements. The Ministry of Defence's Disposal Services Authority will agree with the successful contractor the optimum arrangement for removal of the submarine for conventional recycling, including time-scales.
