Few days back the missile destroyer of the US navy Fitzgerald (DDG 62) arrived at the port of Pascagoula. Now plans has been done for its modernization and improvement in quality and technology. For few days this ship will remain at this port but later will be taken to the Huntington Ingalls Industries Shipyard for better renovation.
The new construction process, repair and modernization in its structure and design will take some time. a wide range of systems including electrical,mechanical,combating systems, radar,turbine generator and air condition plant are required for its repair process and construction.
According to the plan Fitzgerald will be updated with C51 and combat system at the end of 2019.The work for its construction is expected to began throughout this year and will further take time in coming year too after keeping in mind all the calculated time intervals for its trial period and reconstruction because seven sailors already lost their lives after the collision of Fitzgerald with the Pipeline – Flagged ACX Crystal last year in June.
