TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 24, 2019 — VT Systems‘ shipbuilding business works to ensure its new blast and paint facility in Mississippi, which became fully operational in October, is aligned with its effort to follow environmentally responsible business practices for marine construction, ExecutiveBiz reported April 9.

MarineLink reported April 5 that VT Halter Marine’s facility in Pascagoula is designed to provide improved coatings and reduce corrosion for ship sections under construction, as well as protect employees and nearby areas from particulate matter emission.

“Halter Marine’s new state-of-the-art blast and paint facility is part of our continued commitment to protecting the environment and ensuring the safety of our most valuable asset — our people,” Tom Vecchiolla, president and CEO of VT Systems and a past Wash100 awardee, told ExecutiveBiz.
