Austal’s US shipyard occupies 164 acres in Mobile, AL. Austal’s 700,000sf module manufacturing facility includes an 80,000sf warehouse. The Final Assembly Yard has 4 assembly bays with overhead cranes capable of lifting 40-ton modules; the 3 larger bays include mezzanine levels for shop space, material storage, and small assembly fabrication. There is a 1,000ft bulkhead separated from the bays by a concrete launch apron.

This provides superior seakeeping and aviation and a huge internal mission deck with a large payload carrying capacity. Austal is also designing and building the U.S. DOD’s 103-meter Expeditionary Fast Transport which is capable of transporting troops and their equipment at 35 knots, supporting humanitarian relief efforts, and operating in shallow waters.
