Dwight D Eisenhower

  • Tenneco's Newport News Shipbuilding, Newport News, Va., recently delivered to the United States Navy one of the world's largest warships, the nuclearpowered aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN69).

    With the Eisenhower, Newport News Shipbuilding has delivered 10 of the last 14 nuclear-powered ships received by the Navy since 1974.

    The Eisenhower is the second Nimitz-class carrier and the Navy's third nuclear-powered aircraft carrier — all built by Newport News Shipbuilding. The Navy now has 10 nuclear-powered surface warships, seven built at the world's largest shipyard.

    The Eisenhower is 1,092 feet long, with a flight deck width of more than 250 feet, a combat load displacement of nearly 95,000 tons, and can operate and provide sustained support for a Naval air wing of about 100 aircraft. The crew (including the air group) will number nearly 6,300 people.

    Its initial nuclear cores will provide enough fuel to carry out operations for the next 13 years, thus making it truly independent of propulsion fuel logistic support.

    These cores contain energy equivalent to more than two million tons of coal or 11 million barrels of oil.

    The Dwight D. Eisenhower, to be commanded by Capt. W.E.

    Ramsey, was launched October 11, 1975, and its keel was laid August 15, 1970.

    The shipyard now has under contract or construction 17 ships, including three liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers and three ultra large crude oil carriers (ULCCs). Thus far this year, Newport News Shipbuilding has delivered three ships, launched three, and laid the keels for three others.
