BAE Systems to Overhaul USCG Cutter

Monday, March 19, 2007
BAE Systems won a $1.7m contract for the routine overhaul of the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Munro (WHEC 724).

Work on the Munro, which will begin in June and is scheduled for completion in August, includes repairs to the vessel’s machinery, piping, sea valves and propulsion systems, as well as hull preparation and preservation. All work will be performed at BAE Systems Ship Repair in San Francisco.

“The Coast Guard does the important work of defending our maritime borders and ensuring our safety at sea,” said Al Krekich, president, BAE Systems Ship Repair. “It’s an honor to play a small part in that effort by maintaining the vessels which enable them to carry out these missions. While the U.S. Navy is our primary customer, we are eager to do more work for the Coast Guard.” In December, BAE Systems completed emergency dry dock repairs of the Coast Guard cutter Jarvis (WHEC-725) at its San Francisco facility.

Munro is a 378-foot deep water service cutter which supports the primary missions of safety of life and property, maritime law enforcement and national defense throughout the entire Pacific Ocean Basin. Named after the only Coast Guard Medal of Honor recipient, Signalman First Class Douglas Munro, the vessel has a flight deck capable of landing a Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin helicopter, a state of the art communications and sensor suite and serves as a floating command center capable of coordinating ships and aircraft for search and rescue or responding to natural and environmental accidents and disasters.

BAE Systems Ship Repair is the United States’ leading non-nuclear ship repair, modernization and conversion company – focused on dry dock and ship repair services for the U.S. Navy, other defense agencies and commercial customers. It has major operations in Norfolk, San Diego, San Francisco and Hawaii.
