General Steamship is proud to represent OSI and the U.S. Navy!
Our Portland office has been working with this vessel in the Vigor Shipyard for several months while final preparations are made for her to go fully operational. She is a 75,371 DWT Mobile Landing Platform (MLP) vessel, which is used for staging Naval and Marine Corps equipment at sea. The vessel is named in honor of African American Marine Corps troops who trained at Montford Point Camp, North Carolina from 1942-1949.
