Good news for America’s Shipbuilders
Last week’s article at FoxNews.com highlights the boom in the shipbuilding industry within the last year. According the report, ten supertankers are currently under construction at U.S. shipyards and another 15 will be coming along soon. That’s good news for an industry that has seen some struggles in recent years.
$36 Billion Industry
Design and development of commercial vessels here in the U.S. represents a $36 billion dollar industry. It’s an industry we’ve been involved with for years.
And lately, we’ve noticed the uptick in Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV’s) at builders throughout the Southeast and have worked with some of them to design vessels for specific uses for both in shore and off shore work.
