Must read

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) announced an update to a big improvement project for their government facility.

This second phase of the project includes the following:

  • Construction of 1,000 linear feet of bulkhead, which will provide ESG with more berthing space and better support programs that require multiple vessel deliveries every year
  • Extension of the launch facility by 120 feet to increase the launch way length, accommodating larger ships over 500 feet, and allow the facility to build a variety of different vessels to meet U.S. Navy and other government agencies needs

“This infrastructure improvement project represents a major investment in our government shipbuilding capabilities,” said Joey D’Isernia, Chairman and CEO of ESG. “The increased capacity and shipyard enhancements will allow us to better support the Navy’s initiative to expand the shipbuilding industrial base in order to meet the demands of the national defense strategy.”

The project is expected to be finished by 2025.

ESG officials say this is what the project can expect to look like by 2025.(Eastern Shipbuilding Group)
