USNS Mercy Blackhawk hangars

Rubb Buildings and Protec, Inc. Completed a shipboard project for the USNS Mercy, a 900′ Military Sealift Command hospital ship. The two companies manufactured and erected a 40’w x 48′ BVE range structure with 16.4′ sidewalls that will hangar two (2) Blackhawk helicopters.

 

These aircraft will support a new 5 month humanitarian mission to the Pacific and Far East. Rubb’s design included an I-beam foundation, cargo and personnel doors, and provisions for lifting by crane.

 

The Mercy is based out of San Diego and has been in service since its commissioning in 1986. Most recently, the ship played a critical role in Operation Unified Assistance, the multi-national relief effort which supported many countries in Southeast Asia in the wake of the Dec 26, 2005 tsunami that devastated that region.
