Philly Shipyard, Inc., marked the start of fabrication for the second vessel in a series of National Security Multi-Mission Vessels (NSMV) with a brief steel cutting ceremony. Representatives from Philly Shipyard, TOTE Services, LLC, (TOTE Services), and U.S. DOT Maritime Administration (MARAD) gathered around the yard’s state-of-the-art plasma cutting machine to watch the official start. The first steel plates cut will be later joined into a double bottom, mid-ship section.

Following the initial steel cutting for NSMV I in December, this event signifies the second major construction milestone in the NSMV program – a MARAD project to develop the first purpose-built, state-of-the-art training vessels for America’s state maritime academies.

In April 2020, TOTE Services awarded Philly Shipyard, a leading shipyard in the United States, a contract to construct up to five NSMVs with an initial order for two vessels. In January 2021, MARAD authorized TOTE to execute a subsequent order for the third and fourth ships in the series. The first NSMV has a target delivery in early 2023.
