The company recently received a US$14 million state commitment for Port of Terrebonne infrastructure improvements that will help with construction of the company’s fifth shipyard, to be known as LaShip.
Edison Chouest hasn’t disclosed how much it’s spending on the project but said it will create 1,000 jobs at the site in the next two years.
LaShip will be Edison Chouest’s largest marine manufacturing facility and it will build offshore vessels for deep-water energy exploration.
