Blevins is the Navy's DDG 1000 program manager at Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast; Fillmore is Ingalls' DDG 1000 program manager for deckhouse and hangar. Standing (left to right) are Jonathan Graves, deputy program manager’s representative, SupShip Gulf Coast; Jeff Roberts, DDG 1000 program management; Neil Adams, general ship superintendent; Dell Simmons, composite superintendent; and Steve Sloan, DDG 1000 program

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced that its Ingalls Shipbuilding division has delivered the composite hangar that will be used on the U.S. Navy's second Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer, Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001).

The 220-ton structure will be translated to a shipping barge and sent to Maine in early October. Ingalls is building the hangar, peripheral vertical launch system (PVLS) and composite deckhouse for Michael Monsoor. The PVLS was delivered in July, and all that remains is the deckhouse delivery expected in first quarter of 2014.

"Our shipbuilders' performance on this hangar composite construction has allowed us to deliver it nine days ahead of the commitment made last year," said Ingalls' DDG 1000 Program Manager Steve Sloan. "This construction time is a significant improvement from the first set of class products to the second set. It is a testament to the hard work and excellent logistics and manufacturing processes put in place on this program. A considerable amount of outfitting transpired earlier in the process allowing for the early delivery time."
