VT Halter already has takers for new floating dock

PASCAGOULA — VT Halter Marine Inc. says it’s already got customers for its newest floating dry dock.

The dock is part of an overall expansion plan at the south yard in Pascagoula. The south yard is same location where VT Halter Marine is adding a repair facility for semi-submersible drilling rigs and Panamax-size ships.

Bill Skinner, VT Halter Marine CEO, says the dry dock allows the company to grow into the ship repair business.

Skinner tells The Mississippi Press that the company will now have a similar business model as its counterpart in Singapore, ST Marine, having both new-build and repair capabilities.

Skinner says VT Halter Marine expects to create as many as 400 new jobs with the development of this new facility.
