Halter Marine, Pascagoula MS

(formerly Chicago Bridge & Iron, now VT Halter Marine)

Most recent update: August 26, 2014.


Halter Pascagoula was originally owned and operated by Chicago Bridge & Iron, which built drilling rigs and offshore platforms there.  It was bought by Trinity Industries in 1995 and a plan for its development as a shipbuilding facility for deep-draft cargo ships was developed for Trinity by IHI but never implemented.  It was spun off by Trinity as part of Halter Marine Group in 1996 and the development plan was partly implemented.  In July 2002, it was one of the six remaining Halter shipyards that were acquired by Singapore Technologies from the bankruptcy of Friede Goldman Halter.  It is now a division of VT Halter Marine and is the VTHM yard that specializes in oceangoing ships and barges.  Visit the new company at www.vthm.com, see the VTHM construction record here and see the shipyard from the air on Google here.
