Halter Marine To Convert Supply Vessel For EPA Under $4.2-Million Pact

The Maritime Administration has announced the recent award of a $4.2-million contract to Halter Marine, Inc, Gulfport, Miss., a member of the Trinity Marine Group.

Among the projects included in the conversion are the removal of drilling mud tanks and replacing them with scientific laboratories, the addition of new crew quarters, expansion of the superstructure to provide more working spaces, and installation of new scientific and navigational equipment.
