MENUMENU

BAE Systems has begun construction on the MV Magdalen an 8500 cubic yard capacity trailing suction hopper dredge for Weeks Marine Inc. Executives from the two companies gathered this week at the BAE Systems Mobile shipyard to oversee the initial cutting of steel for the vessel’s first module which will weigh 130 tons. When complete in 2014 the entire vessel will measure 340 feet long and 79 feet wide with a draft of 27 feet.
