The US Navy has awarded BAE a $51.3 million contract for the modernisation of the USS Roosevelt, an Arleigh Burke class destroyer.

According to BAE:

“Under the competitively awarded, depot maintenance availability contract, BAE Systems first will dry dock the ship at the company’s shipyard and then complete the work at Naval Station Mayport, both located in Jacksonville, Florida.

The work is expected to begin in April and be completed in April 2018.”

David Thomas, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Jacksonville Ship Repair said:

“The Roosevelt availability is a large, complex repair job that is vital for the future readiness and combat effectiveness of the ship. Our team is eager to get to work on the Roosevelt and get the ship ready for service in the fleet for many years to come.”


  1. As Julia Roberts said in Pretty Women Big Mistake Huge !!! And here is the Punch line: Our team is eager to get to work on the Roosevelt and get the ship ready for service in the fleet for many years to come.” They can expect to pay double that after BAE get there hands on it would not trust they to service my bike

  2. Would not trust you to speak English either, or proof read. Why did BAE get the contract? The best? Cheapest? all round greatest offer? Seriously, look at how you have been previously scalpel, and now look why an outside country contract may look favourable.

  3. Well BUD you either work for BAE =British And Expensive or you cannot see past the end of your noise as to the rubbish they turn out Type 45 six vessels notched up a staggering 1,515 days in our harbours in the year between April 2015 and 2016 – and four of the state-of-the-art ships were stationary for more than 300 days each.
    BAE and its subsidiaries operate multiple shipyards across the United States, and have the United States Navy as an important client. Yet three of these facilities have been cited—some multiple times—for serious safety problems.
    DEFENCE giant BAE Systems has been ordered to pay almost £350,000 after a worker was crushed to death by a 145-tonnes metal press at Brough.
    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), prosecuting, described the death of maintenance engineer Gary Whiting, 51, as an “entirely preventable tragedy” caused by the serious safety failings of BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd.

    Still think they are the best Bud
