American Phoenix

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

BAE Systems joined with Mid Ocean Tanker Company (MOTC), Mid Ocean Marine and Alterna Captial Partners earlier this year to commission the American Phoenix, a U.S. Flag/Jones Act-qualified product-chemical tanker.
Measuring 616 x 105 ft. with a laden draft of 36 ft. and a cargo capacity of 49,000 dwt, American Phoenix is the largest vessel ever built and launched in the State of Alabama.
BAE Systems was contracted to complete construction of the American Phoenix and prepare it for use. The vessel is owned by MOTC, a joint venture between Mid Ocean Marine and private equity firm Alterna Capital Partners. The vessel will conduct trade initially in the Gulf of Mexico.
Operating management of the vessel will be performed by Seabulk Tankers, a division of Seacor Holdings, one of the most experienced operators in the U.S. Jones Act trades. The American Phoenix is the newest vessel to come from the BAE Systems Mobile shipyard, which has a rich history of ship construction and repair. The yard launched its first new construction vessel, the steam powered ship Banago, on September 19, 1918.
Alternative Marine Technologies, ABS, US Coatings, MMIF, F & S Superb Marine, LES, Diamond Scaffolding, Insulation Inc, Jamestown Metal and Machinery, L-3 Maritime Systems, R+S Stolze, MAK, International Paint, Sea Technology, Bisso Marine Company, 2/2 Houston Holloway, Universal Services, Offshore Inland, Resolve Engineering and Fire Protection Services all played a significant part in completing the American Phoenix.
