The work includes repairs to the vessel’s machinery, piping, sea valves and propulsion systems, as well as hull preparation and preservation. All work will be performed at BAE Systems Ship Repair in San Francisco, where BAE Systems completed emergency dry dock repairs of the Coast Guard cutter Jarvis (WHEC-725) In December.



The Munro is a 115m deep-water service cutter which operates throughout the entire Pacific OceanBasin. The vessel has a flight deck capable of landing a Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin helicopter, an advanced communications and sensor suite and serves as a floating command centre capable of coordinating ships and aircraft for search and rescue or responding to natural and environmental accidents and disasters.
