JJH Awarded Navy Pact
For Design Services
For Lead Minehunter Ship
JJH Inc., a naval engineering company, has been awarded a con- tract by shipbuilder Intermarine
USA, Savannah, Ga., for the de- tailed outfitting design for the lead ship of the U.S. Navy's new coastal minehunter (MHC-51) Class.
To be named the USS Osprey, the minehunter will be 188 feet long, 36 feet wide and have a depth of 17 feet. She will have an anti-shock sin- gle-skin, monocoque-glass-rein- forced plastic hull, and will be pow- ered by two amagnetic Isotta Fras- chini diesel engines driving two
Voith Schneider cycloidal propel- lers. The design is a derivative of
Intermarine's highly successful Ler- ici Class minehunters built for the
Italian Navy. The class will form the basis for the low-risk proven high technology minehunter solution re- quired by the U.S. Navy.
When completed, the USS Os- prey will be commissioned to hunt and clear mines from U.S. harbors and coastal waters.
Intermarine USA is a joint ven- ture of Intermarine SpA, Saranza,
Italy, and U.S.-based Hercules, Inc.
Intermarine SpA has successfully completed a total of 10 Lerici Class mine countermeasure vessels for the
JJH, Inc., has facilities in Cherry
Hill, N.J., Portsmouth, Va., Bath,
Maine, Crystal City, Va., and Long
Beach, Calif. For information on
