General Dynamics - Construction of Eighth T-AKE Ship Begins

General Dynamics : 02 November, 2007  (Company News)
General Dynamics NASSCO, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, laid the keel for the seventh dry cargo-ammunition ship in the U.S. Navy's T-AKE program and started construction of the eighth ship this week. Both ships will be delivered to the Navy in 2009.
'Laying the keel of T-AKE 7 and starting construction of T-AKE 8 are the latest milestones in the successful Navy auxiliary ship program,' said Frederick J. Harris, president of General Dynamics NASSCO. 'These two events are evidence that the NASSCO team is building and delivering T-AKE ships efficiently. With one ship now deployed overseas and two other ships in service, the T-AKE class is already contributing to the Navy's forward presence posture.'
