Grant Awarded to Bay Shipbuilding

Governor Scott Walker recently approved a $2,309,022 Harbor Assistance Program grant award to Bay Shipbuilding for construction of a new dock wall to allow for the docking of large vessels for maintenance and construction. Created in 1979, Wisconsin’s Harbor Assistance Program helps harbor communities maintain and improve waterborne commerce. Bay Shipbuilding also recently announced that it had entered into several contracts with Moran Towing Corporation to build five vessels. The new vessels will be entirely built at BSC’s facility in Sturgeon Bay and are scheduled to be delivered separately during the next 24-months.
