Avondale Shipyards Division of New Orleans, under subcontract from Ingalls Shipbuilding Division, will perform the major work that is required in the drydocking of the battleship Wisconsin (BB 64), including the pumping out, gas freezing, repairing, and all of the coating of the ship's fuel and water tanks, replacement of propellers, inspection and repair of the shafts and rudders, and the inspection and repair of the sea chests and sea valves.
In addition, the entire exterior of the ship's hull will be recoated.
The Wisconsin will be docked in Avondale's 81,000-ton floating drydock using the techniques that were previously used to dock the battleship Iowa, which safeguard the vessel from fire and other dangers involved in this type of work.
At its peak, the work will provide employment for about 1,150 workers.
When Avondale completes its work at the end of this year, the Wisconsin will then be towed to Ingalls in Pascagoula, Miss., for the remainder of its reactivation work.
Avondale's reactivation work adds to its backlog of six T-AO 187 Class Fleet Oilers and five LSD-41 Class Landing Ship Docks.
