HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--
BAE Systems (News - Alert) will showcase a range of shipbuilding and repair
capabilities for commercial customers at the 2012 Offshore Technology
Conference, April 30 - May 3 at the Reliant Center in Houston. Members
of the media are encouraged to stop by booth #2563 to learn more.
With more than 5,000 experienced project managers and highly skilled
tradespeople, BAE Systems has logged millions of man-hours with proven
success in dry-dock and pier-side construction, maintenance, repair,
overhaul and conversion of a full spectrum of vessels.
Recently, BAE Systems teamed with Mid Ocean Tanker Company to complete,
launch and deliver the American Phoenix, a U.S. Flag/Jones Act-qualified
product chemical tanker. Measuring 616 feet long and 105 feet wide, it
is the largest vessel ever launched from the State of Alabama. It has a
draft of 36 feet and a cargo capacity of 49,000 dwt.
BAE Systems has also been selected by Weeks Marine, Inc. to build an
8,500-cubic-yard capacity twin screw trailing suction hopper dredge of
IHC Merwede design. Upon completion, the dredge will be 356 feet long,
79 feet wide with a draft of 27 feet.
With state-of-the-art craft shops and fabrication facilities, as well as
mobile work teams, no job is too big or too small for BAE Systems - from
container and supply vessels to mega-yachts and tugs. The company
operates six full-service shipyards in Mobile, Alabama; San Francisco
and San Diego, California; Jacksonville, Florida; Norfolk, Virginia; and
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
