Halter Marine has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command (TACOM) for the detailed design and construction of a Logistic Support Vessel (LSV). The contract includes provisions for spare parts, technical services, and options to build two additional LSVs. The 313-foot LSV class vessels will have a beam of 60 feet and a molded depth of 19 feet. They are designed to carry over 2000 tons of deck cargo, and will be designed and built to the requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping.

“We are extremely pleased that the U.S. Army has chosen Halter for this very significant program,” said Anil Raj, Chief Operating Officer of Friede Goldman Halter. “Contracts such as this one and the recent letter of intent for a Supply Vessel contract are important reinforcements of the fact that governments and commercial concerns alike still maintain their confidence in our ability, and in our people,” Raj continued. “With the exception of the Petrodrill program where we had no choice but to curtail our losses, work on our other projects continues, and negotiations continue to secure even more work in each of our segments. In the recent past, we have delivered two Power-Generation Barges, an Expeditionary Series yacht, and the world’s largest SWATH-hull vessel. “

Halter has successfully completed numerous U.S. Army programs such as the Landing Craft Utility (LCU), the Large Tug (LT), and has already built all six (6) of the LSV’s currently in the Army’s fleet.
