BAE wins destroyer maintenance work

1st February 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems is to modernise the US Navy’s USS Roosevelt under a $51.3 million contract announced on 31 January.

The company will dry dock the Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyer at its Jacksonville, Florida shipyard, and then carry out depot maintenance. Work will complete in April 2018.

The full value of the contract could reach $68.4 million if all options are exercised.

David Thomas, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Jacksonville Ship Repair, said: ‘The Roosevelt availability is a large, complex repair job that is vital for the future readiness and combat effectiveness of the ship. Our team is eager to get to work on the Roosevelt and get the ship ready for service in the fleet for many years to come.’
