The Dreadnought submarine programme will move into its second phase, which will continue the design and build of the first Dreadnought submarine and begin work on the second, at a purpose-built, state-of-the-art £100m construction building at the Barrow-in-Furness site.
Williamson will say: "Agincourt will complete the Royal Navy's seven-strong fleet of hunter-killer attack subs, the most powerful to ever enter British service, whilst our nuclear deterrent is the ultimate defence against the most extreme dangers we could possibly face".
The Defence Secretary said: "This multi-billion-pound investment in our nuclear submarines shows our unwavering commitment to keeping the United Kingdom safe and secure from intensifying threats".
"Not only is this a massive boost for our armed forces, but it's huge for Barrow, the heart of sub-building in this country".
A further £900 million was also pledged for the next phase of the Dreadnought SSBN submarine programme, boats that will carry the UK's nuclear deterrent into the next generation and beyond.
The funding will create around 8,000 jobs in United Kingdom defense firm BAE Systems, which will be in charge of the submarines building projects.
Cliff Robson, submarines managing director at BAE, said the contracts would support approximately 8,700 employees at BAE's submarines business and back the firm's supply chain that works to deliver on the Royal Navy's submarine programs. It is scheduled for handover to the Royal Navy in the mid-2020s. By contrast, the Dreadnought class SSBNs will measure 153m long, displacing 17,200t. They are being delivered by the newly-formed Dreadnought Alliance, a joint management team established between the MOD, BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce. In 2017 alone, BAE Systems spent around £700m with more than 700 suppliers.
