Southwest Marine Inc. (SWM), a West Coast network of ship repair ards, announced the award of an 11.5 million contract for work to be performed in Ingleside, Texas. The award of this five-year, phased maintenance contract on four MCM class ships, opens a new market for SWM in a new location on the Gulf of Mexico. SWM is leasing the repair facility from Braswell Services Group Shipyard based in Charleston, S.C.

The four ships involved are USS Avenger (MCM-1), USS Champion (MCM-4), USS Patriot (MCM-7), and USS Defender (MCM-2). The mission of these minesweepers is to sweep deep moored, magnetic, and acoustic mines. The ships are about 200 ft. (60.9 m) long and 35 ft. (10.6 m) wide. The general work package includes hull, mechanical, and electrical repairs and ship alterations. Program management and several administrative functions such as purchasing, engineering and planning are being handled by SWM.
