Philly Shipyard Awarded Repair Contract for USNS Charlton
Philly Shipyard, Inc., the sole operating subsidiary of Philly Shipyard ASA (OSE: PHLY), today announced it has been awarded a contract by Patriot Contract Services – the ship manager on behalf of the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) – for the repair of the USNS Charlton (T-AKR-314). The repairs will be completed in the Q3 2021 timeframe.
"This is a great win for our shipyard and demonstrates our ability to acquire substantial repair jobs going forward," said Steinar Nerbovik, Philly Shipyard’s President and CEO. "We look forward to working with Patriot as we continue on our journey as a strong partner for government projects."
The USNS Charlton is one of MSC’s large, medium-speed, roll-on/roll-off ships. With a displacement of 69,000 tons and a length of 950 feet, the vessel carries prepositioned U.S. Army tanks, armored personnel carriers, tractor-trailers, and other equipment and supplies to potential areas of conflict around the world. It also provides surge sealift support of remote military actions.
This is another positive step in the company’s ambition to establish a mixed platform of ship maintenance, repair, and conversions, along with ship construction for the commercial and government new build markets. It also marks the third government repair contract that Philly Shipyard has been awarded since the end of 2019 and their first contract with Patriot as ship manager.
"Patriot is excited to further support U.S. shipyards on behalf of MSC and, specifically, Philly Shipyard’s growth platform and deepening domestic expertise," said Ryan Libhart Pereyda, Patriot’s Principal and CEO.
