BAE Systems will showcase a range of maritime capabilities, including ship repair and construction services and marine hybrid solutions, at the 2011 International Work Boat Show, November 30 – December 2 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans in booth 1349.
BAE Systems will be discussing ship repair and construction. The ship repair team at BAE Systems has logged millions of man-hours with proven success in drydock and pierside repairs, as well as maintenance, overhaul and conversion of a full spectrum of commercial and military vessels. With state-of-the-art ship repair craft shops and fabrication facilities, as well as mobile work teams, no job is too big or too small – from massive cruise ships and container vessels to mega-yachts and tugs.
BAE Systems operates full-service shipyards in Mobile, Alabama; San Francisco and San Diego, California; Jacksonville, Florida; Norfolk, Virginia; and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The company also has a satellite ship repair facility in Mayport, Florida. In addition to the ship repair capabilities, the Mobile and Jacksonville yards boast modern, new commercial construction and module fabrication facilities that allow for projects ranging from component fabrication to complete new vessel construction, from the keel up.
The company will also be discussing its hybrid solutions. BAE Systems’ hybrid solutions for marine applications can save thousands of gallons of fuel and cut fuel costs significantly. The company offers three marine options: hybrid assist, HybriDrive propulsion or cruising genset. These achieve efficiencies by blending auxiliary power and main propulsion based on the vessel’s duty cycle.
