17 May 2021

Two Type 45 Destroyers, HMS Daring and HMS Duncan, are currently undergoing planned deep maintenance. Work is also underway on HMS Dauntless, the first ship to enter the Type 45 Power Improvement Project.

It is planned that all six Type 45 ships will have received the Power Improvement Project upgrade by the mid-2020s. The programme is dependent on the availability of ships to undertake the upgrade, balanced against the Royal Navy's standing and future operational commitments.
