Halter Marine Awarded $85-Million Navy Contract To Build Six T-AGOS Ships
Jack Edwards, president of Halter Marine, has announced the receipt of a contract from the U.S.
Naval Sea Systems Command for the construction of six ocean surveillance ships (T-AGOS). Total contract value, including options, is said to be in excess of $85 million.
The T-AGOS vessels, which have an overall length of 224 feet and a beam of 43 feet, will be operated by the Military Sealift Command and will have accommodations for 21 civilian crew and 12 technicians.
The ships will be built to the requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping and the U.S. Coast Guard, under the inspection of the Navy's Supervisor of Shipbuilding offices at the building yards.
The contract authorizes Halter to proceed with the engineering for all six vessels and the construction of the first two. The remaining four vessels will be funded in fiscal years 86 and 87.
The vessels awarded to Halter have been designated T-AGOS-13 through 18, and are follow-ons to a 12-ship contract that was awarded to Tacoma Boatbuilding in 1980.
The Halter vessels will have significant modifications to the earlier ships, including changes in accommodations, operation centers, tankage, and structural arrangements.
