PASCAGOULA, MS - Haskell has been awarded a $4.6 million U.S. Coast Guard design-build contract for Home Porting Fast Response Cutters at USCG Station, Pascagoula, MS. This work will ensure that that Station Pascagoula is ready to support the arrival of the Fleet’s soon to be commissioned Fast Response Cutters, scheduled for the end of 2014. These state-of-the-art vessels replace some of the Coast Guard’s aging fleet and are vital to our national security.
Haskell is committed to the timely delivery of these improvements without impacting the Station’s ongoing operations. The design-build scope will include the renovations to 3 support buildings, shore-tie services, pier utilities, fenders and cleats, along with the resurfacing of an existing parking lot. Haskell recently completed similar work at USCG Station Key West in support of Fast Response Cutters’ arrival at that location.
Throughout history, when man went out to sea in ships, great efforts were taken to rescue those in danger. USCG Station Pascagoula manages Search and Rescue; Ports, Waterways, and Coastal Security; as well as Federal Law Enforcement from 10 Statute Miles North of Interstate 10, to 30 miles south of the barrier islands, and in between the tips of Dauphin and Deer Island.
