Marine equipment manufacturer Schoellhorn-Albrecht said it has been awarded a subcontract from Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) to design and build various equipment for the U.S. Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Cutters (OPC).

Schoellhorn-Albrecht was selected for the deck machinery, deck fittings, accommodation ladder system and structural castings including the shaft strut and stern tube.
The OPC is the U.S. Coast Guard's largest shipbuilding program. The U.S. Coast Guard's current contract calls for ESG to build 11 OPCs to replace the medium endurance cutters. The OPC provides a capability bridge between the national security cutter which patrols the open ocean and the fast response cutter which patrols closer to shore.
The new Offshore Patrol Cutters will be built at ESG's shipbuilding facility in Panama City, Fla. Construction is set to begin in 2018 with delivery of the first vessel scheduled for 2021.
