PASCAGOULA — Huntington Ingalls Industries is putting its new patrol frigate design on display this week at the Pacific 2012 International Maritime and Naval Exposition in Sydney, Australia.
The frigates would be built in Pascagoula. They are based on the company’s cutter being built for the Coast Guard.
Huntington Ingalls officials say in a statement that the vessels will be targeted at an international market. They say they expect to sell 215 frigates over the next 20 years.
Officials say most of the demand is expected to come from Asia and Australia.
Ingalls Shipbuilding has delivered three cutters to the Coast Guard, and two more ships are currently under construction. The Coast Guard plans to purchase at least eight of the cutters.
