General Dynamics
: 04 October, 2008  (New Product)
General Dynamics NASSCO, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, has laid the keel for the ninth dry cargo-ammunition ship in the U.S. Navy's T-AKE program. Construction of the ship began in April. The ship will be named later and is scheduled to be delivered to the Navy in the first quarter of 2010.
NASSCO has delivered the first five ships of the T-AKE class and has construction contracts for five additional ships. The Navy is expected to order the construction of a total of 14 vessels.

Located in San Diego, NASSCO employs more than 4,800 people and is the only major ship construction yard on the West Coast of the United States. In addition to the T-AKE program, the shipyard is building the first three product carriers under a nine-ship order from U.S. Shipping Partners L.P.
