BAE Systems and Mid Ocean Tanker Company have together launched the American Phoenix, the largest vessel to be launched from Alabama with a draft of 36 feet and a cargo capacity of 49,000 dwt.

“This is a major event for shipbuilding in the Mobile area,“ said Vic Rhoades, director and general manager of BAE’s Alabama shipyards business. “In total, the construction of this vessel has created more than 150 full-time jobs.“

In April, BAE was contracted to finish the ship’s construction at the Mobile, Ala. shipyard. It is now about 85 percent complete and will sail to its homeport in Texas to conduct trade in the Gulf of Mexico upon completion.

The remaining work includes installation of a pilot house, equipment star ups and systems integration.

The facility has completed more than $14 million in repairs during 2011 to accommodate new construction and existing business.
