US SECNAV Names 1st Ship of T-AO(X) Next Gen Fleet Replenishment Oilers USNS John Lewis
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
The TAO(X) oiler shipbuilding program is a program to build a new class of 17 fleet oilers for the Navy. The primary role of Navy fleet oilers is to transfer fuel to Navy surface ships that are operating at sea, so as to extend the operating endurance of these surface ships and their embarked aircraft. The Navy wants to procure the first TAO(X) in FY2016.

US SECNAV Names 1st Ship of T-AO(X) Next Gen Fleet Replenishment Oilers USNS John Lewis
This will be a class of 17 large replenishment oilers to replace the 15 USNS Heryy Kaiser TAO class oilers currently in service.

The Kaisers started entering service in 1986 and have a projected 35 year service life. They displace 41,000 tons and are 677 feet long.

The new John Lewis class will increase the space for dry cargo, increase the overall lift carrying capacity, add a refueling capability for helicopters on the flight deck, improved =the electrical power system, and add more automation.

They will look very similar, but may displace upwards of 50,000 tons, and be a little longer.

Naval Today said:
August 1, 2016 - -Fairbanks Morse, an EnPro Industries company, will supply the main propulsion diesel engines – with the latest in diesel engine technology – for theUSNS John Lewis, the lead ship in the U.S. Navy’s new T-AO 205 class of underway replenishment oiler ships.

The ship will be powered by two FM-MAN 12V 48/60 CR engines, which will be built by Fairbanks Morse in Beloit, Wisconsin. The engines, rated at just over 19,000 bhp each, will be equipped with common rail fuel injection and engine control systems, and will meet the latest emission requirements with an exhaust after-treatment system. Fairbanks Morse will also provide propulsion control systems, auxiliary equipment and commissioning services.

The John Lewis is the first in its class and will be built by General Dynamics National Steel and Shipbuilding Co. (NASSCO) in San Diego. The ship is a double-hulled tanker that will be operated by the Military Sealift Command to support Navy surface ships operating at sea. Fleet replenishment oiler ships transfer fuel to surface ships and supply lubricants, fresh water and some dry cargo. Lewis class ships will replace the Navy’s fleet of existing single-hull tankers.

In announcing the order, Fairbanks Morse President Marvin Riley highlighted the benefits of this engine choice to the United States Navy and American taxpayers. “Common rail fuel injection technology reduces fuel consumption and reduces the total life cycle cost for the Navy, which provides a significant benefit to the T-AO 205 program,” he said. “We are very excited about the opportunity to deliver this modern U.S.-built power solution to our trusted, long-time partner NASSCO shipbuilding.”

Riley also acknowledged the efforts of U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, who championed a provision in the FY 2017 Defense Appropriations Bill that required the domestic manufacture of certain key shipboard components, including diesel engines. “This provision has provided Fairbanks Morse and others who manufacture in the U.S. an opportunity to compete fairly for defense related work,” he said. “In addition to ensuring U.S. investment in critical portions of the U.S. shipbuilding industry, the domestic manufacture requirement provides the Department of Defense with confidence that the manufacturing industrial base will maintain its integrity far into the future.”

“I have seen firsthand the innovation and hard work taking place at Fairbanks Morse,” Baldwin said. “Our country is stronger when we bolster our national defense by supporting Made in Wisconsin manufacturing and I’m proud to have championed this effort to strengthen both our national security and our economy.”

At present, the U.S. Navy has ordered six of the new Lewis class ships, pending appropriations, to be built over the next six years. Ultimately the program will include 17 ships, constructed over the next 17 years.

The Mistral class LHD has a top speed of over 18kt and a length of 199m. It is designed to transport troops, equipment, heavy helicopters and landing craft. A hospital board is capable of carrying out large-scale humanitarian missions.

A total of 180 sailors of the Egyptian Navy have been trained in Saint-Nazaire since February 2016. The training was conducted by instructors with partners DCNS Défense Conseil International and STX France.

The LHD Gamal Abdel Nasser now leave Saint-Nazaire with two associated support vessels - a fast ship amphibious landing ships wastewater treatment plant and two new-generation landing CTM GN - to participate in a joint exercise between the Egyptian and French navies. at the end you will be directed to the port in Alexandria.

The Egyptians are really modernizing their fleet.

Those two new LHDs are, IMHO, in many ways better than the French variant because of the upgrades/changes the Russians ordered for them.

Add to that the FREMM FFG and the GoWind FFGs and you have a very modern and capable force being developed.

The Turks are also really modernizing their Navy...and, as a matter of fact, the Algerians are too.
