About BAE Systems Hawaii

BAE Systems’ Hawaii Shipyards, the largest private-sector ship repair company in Hawaii, is located at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard’s dry dock 4.

Our highly skilled, experienced personnel are equipped to provide complete marine repair services 24-7, with the following:

  • Access to the Navy’s 100,000-ton graving dock, capable of accommodating today’s largest Navy and commercial vessels.
  • Mobile cranes up to 300 tons.
  • High reaches, forklifts, and all heavy equipment required to support the ship repair industry.
  • Covered production shop facilities, offices, and storage.

Hawaii Shipyards has quickly become known as the go-to group for repairs, helping U.S. Navy surface ships in Hawaii meet their commitments. In addition, Hawaii Shipyards has a multi-year contract that can provide support to the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard through the Regional Maintenance Center, if required.

BAE Systems capabilities and presence in Pearl Harbor enhances an already vibrant environment, based on the growing spirit of public and private partnership. As the U.S. Navy Fleet mission changes, an increased demand for modernization exists. The Navy has a commitment to getting the full service life out of existing platforms; because of this need for more surface ship work on cruisers and destroyers home ported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Shipyards provides additional resources to the U.S. Navy and its commercial customers.
