Halifax Shipyards Expands (Into Dartmouth)

This past weekend it was reported that Irving Shipbuilding has purchased the former Maritime Steel Site at 604 Windmill Rd. in Dartmouth. The sale occurred in June. The site is currently home to a precast concrete Highway Barrier facility.

Though the site has waterfront, it is located next to a piece of land owned by the Halifax Port Authority which has the former Scunda Pier. This pier is probably best known as the location of the Rusted former Russian Offshore supply vessel that was sent for crap last year.

Though Plans have not been announced, it is likely that Steel cutting, or even module assembly tasks will be done at this facility with components being barged over to the Halifax Facility.
