Miami, Florida: Pearlson Shiplift Corporation and BAE Systems Ship Repair have announced the construction of a $200-million dollar shiplift facility, located in Jacksonville, Florida USA.
The new shiplift system will be approximately 500 ft. long and 110 ft. wide, and will be capable of handling vessels of nearly 25,000 tons, including the U.S. Navy’s Ticonderoga-Class Guided Missile Cruiser, the Arleigh Burke-Class Guided Missile Destroyer, both the Freedom and Independence-Class Littoral Combat Ships and the recently named Constellation-Class Frigates.
BAE Systems Jacksonville Ship Repair’s (BAEJSR) planned shiplift complex will expand industrial base capacity, which is not possible with existing dry-docking facilities today. Such expansion will help retain the essential capability for national defense, as well as for the U.S. and international maritime industry.
BAEJSR is expanding its shipyard through the design, construction, and commissioning of a new Pearlson Shiplift complex. The Pearlson Shiplift System allows for hauling ships out of the water. The ships then will be transported via Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) to a new land level facility. The new JSR shiplift complex will increase dry docking capacity from two large-hulled ships today to as many as six (6) vessels simultaneously. At project completion, BAEJSR will have the most capable facility in the southeast United States, with the ability to service and maintain:
BAE Systems’ shiplift complex is envisioned to deliver lower docking costs, greater schedule flexibility, increased maintenance efficiency, and nearly continuous dry docking availability. In addition, there are other benefits of the complex:
On-site construction activities are scheduled to begin in early 2023, with final testing / commissioning of the system expected in early 2025.
