Philly Shipyard is teaming with Fincantieri Marine Group (FMG) to compete for the detail design and construction of the next generation heavy polar icebreaker for the United States Coast Guard (USCG).

The USCG recently selected five shipyards to each conduct an industry study to help refine the vessel’s key features and performance requirements. Over the next year, FMG and Philly Shipyard, along with the naval architecture and marine engineering firm, VARD, will develop a baseline icebreaker design, cost estimate and project schedule and then refine them based on the results of the technical studies and corresponding feedback from the USCG.
