Eastern Shipbuilding conducts design reviews for offshore patrol cutter
Eastern Shipbuilding has successfully conducted its final critical design review (FCDR) with the United States Coast Guard for the offshore patrol cutter (OPC) program.
The purpose of the FCDR is to verify that the OPC detail design is integrated and internally consistent with the USCG requirements and points towards the exercise of the contract option for construction of the first hull, USCGC ARGUS.
Construction of the lead vessel is anticipated to start after the contract option is exercised with delivery in 2021.
The production readiness review will begin on July 31, 2018.
