New Navy Commander Patrick Lorge Comes to San Diego in July

San Diego’s Navy is welcoming a new Navy Commander to the Southwest Navy region. The current commander, Rear Admiral Dixon Smith, is being assigned to take control of the Navy unit in Norfolk, Virginia. Smith will be leaving San Diego’s command in July.

The current responsibilities of Commander Smith in the Southwest Naval region consists of managing and supervising all California Naval vessels and property in addition to 5 other surrounding states.

News was released from the Pentagon on Thursday revealing the change in command from Rear Admiral Smith to Rear Admiral Patrick Lorge. Lorge is currently assigned as commandant of the Washington, D.C. Naval District.

Once July rolls around, Rear Admiral Smith will have completed 19 months of service with the San Diego Navy, which is fairly common since most commanding officers will keep the same position for about 2 or 3 years. However, if the Navy needs assistance in certain areas, this length of service may fluctuate with the needs of the military.

The new San Diego Navy Commander Patrick Lorge is a New Jersey native that has much experience commandeering Virginia’s Oceana Naval Air Station. Lorge was an aviator and has years of experience flying F-14 Tomcats. Lorge has also commanded the U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Squadron VFA-25.

Rear Admiral Patrick Lorge will be working in San Diego by July 2nd, taking Commander Smith’s position. A command ceremony will be held at the USS Midway Museum around this time. Smith’s current office is located at the Navy Complex on Harbor Drive and Broadway.

San Diego NASSCO Increases Jobs by 800

Earlier in the year, General Dynamics NASSCO was cutting back on employment expenses due to a downturn in the Navy ship repair industry.

Fortunately for many San Diegans, NASSCO received a contract to build four huge liquid natural gas tankers in the years ahead. This additional work at the San Diego shipyard reveals that the company will need to hire another 800 workers.

The government contract specifies that the work will last until 2018. This commercial work is fantastic for San Diego’s economy; and the relationships between San Diego’s NASSCO and American Petroleum Tankers proves NASSCO is the primary ship repair industry for international tankers.

Of the four prospective tankers, the first 610-foot tanker will commence its building process within the third quarter of 2014. The ship will be built at the Barrio Logan shipyard, the last largest shipbuilding company on the West Coast!

These liquid natural gas tankers are quite sophisticated. These tankers are able to carry a maximum of 330,000 barrels. These ships will also be more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. This new line of ships will be classified at ECO-class vessels.

Although the precise amount of the contract is still uncertain, it has been estimated that the new deal will consist of more than $680 million.

The president of NASSCO, Fred Harris, said this in a statement on Friday, “By continuing to bring the most economical and environmentally sound technology to Jones Act operators, these ECO tankers show our continued commitment to be one of the most innovative shipyards in America. I am pleased to renew our partnership with APT on this exciting new program. Along with TOTE, this is the second return customer we have welcomed back to NASSCO within the past six months, which speaks to the high-quality workmanship of our skilled workforce.”

The president of NASSCO is definitely onboard for the exciting and new adventure of the tanker project. Although NASSCO has seen drastic shifts in employment levels, it is becoming increasingly clear that their amount of employees will jump from 3,100 to 3,900.

As for the San Diego economy, this sudden increase in ship building employment opportunities will benefit the overall condition of the city’s current state.
