    Chouest plans new yard in Houma

    Yard News // October 14, 2005

    Offshore support vessel operator Edison Chouest is reportedly planning to build a new shipyard in the Houma area.

    The company has reportedly secured a finance package that could pave the way for the new yard.

    The financing could include a package of state economic incentives for Edison Chouest, which plans to build the shipyard on 77 acres along the Houma Navigational Canal, creating around 750 jobs.

    "This is going to be a first-class, state-of-the-art shipbuilding facility," Roger White, Edison Chouest senior vice president told local news media. "This facility will be capable of building vessels larger than the 330ft length that we are restricted to now."
