HMI, a division of Friede Goldman Halter, Inc. laid the keel of the U.S. Army’s Tank and Automotive Command (TACOM) new Enhanced Logistic Vessel (ELSV). The vessel will support TACOM logistical efforts on a worldwide basis. The completed vessels will be 314 ft. long, have a 60 ft. beam and an overall depth of 19ft.

Anil Raj, Chief Operating Officer of FGH said, “Halter has designed and built all of the U.S. Army’s LSVs – this being number seven. Two additional LSV’s have been built previously for the Philippine Navy. We value the trust and confidence that the Army has placed in Halter’s team. In the last year, the support of our loyal customers has made it possible for us to start work on new contracts, which including options, are valued at over $270 million in the past year. In the same period, we have delivered contracts valued at approximately $250 million.”
