AKER PHILADELPHIA SHIPYARD

Aker Philadelphia Shipyard was founded in 1997 by the City of Philadelphia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the United States Government and the Kværner Shipbuilding Division, after the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard was closed in 1995.
Aker Philadelphia Shipyard’s facilities and equipment was installed new in 1998-2000. The shipyard was designed with the specific intent of reducing materials handling operations and is based on experience from state-of-the-art Aker Yards shipyards in Europe.

APSI enjoys a significant advantage in its materials handling capabilities, which include a Goliath Crane with a maximum lift capability of 660 tons; specialized vehicles to transport grand blocks weighing more than 600 tons; and numerous other high-capacity and automated cranes.
