Shipyard Industry Profile
            Commercial Industry Profile
•   U.S. accounts for less than 1% of the world’s shipbuilding output.
     – In the global marketplace, U.S. shipbuilders do not represent a significant market for
•   Employment levels on a steady decline:
     – The shipbuilding industry in the United States employs more than 400,000 people.
         Direct shipbuilding employment of approximately 85,000 people (was 180,000 in
     – Subcontractors and manufacturers of shipboard equipment account for the remaining
         approximately 315,000.
•   U.S. Commercial Ships
     – 110 Jones Act ships for U.S. coastwise trade, 54% of the Jones Act fleet is greater than
         25 years old. 89 Foreign built US Flag ships.

     Commercial Trends and Challenges
•   Oil Pollution Act of 1990
     – Some of the recent backlog of shipbuilding orders has been the result of
        OPA 90 replacements.
     – Double-hull requirement must be met by 2012, after which the backlog
        drops off significantly.
     – In the end, nearly $5 billion in double-hull tankers and tank barge
        construction and conversion work will take place by 2015 to meet the
        double-hull requirement under OPA 90.

•   Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Production/Exploration
     – Before the Deepwater Horizon Disaster, the Offshore Marine Services
       Association estimated it’s members would spend $3 billion on vessels
       for the offshore oil patch in the Gulf of Mexico.**
     – Defacto moratorium for offshore oil and gas development has hurt the
       shipyard industry in both new construction and repair.
     – Expanded oil and gas development in the Gulf, East coast, and Alaska

Commercial Shipyards are
Now More Important Than
 Ever to Navy and Other
 Government Programs
                 Commercial Shipyards Train and Employ
                 the Skilled Labor Necessary to Construct
                      Navy and Government Vessels.

“… Marinette Marine is expected to add 1,000 employees by
  the middle of 2013 to service the contract…” “Economic
  studies showed that the LCS program, running at the rate of
  two ships per year, could generate a total of 5,000 new jobs
  in Wisconsin, including direct employment and indirect
  employment by suppliers, and 2,500 in Michigan…”
       With Navy deal, Marinette Marine sees jobs doubling by mid-2013 | The Business Journal

“Austal USA is expected to more than double its US workforce
  to around 3,800 employees”

Defense of the Jones Act
      Deepwater Horizon Disaster
 A misconception of the Gulf Oil Spill
 response was –
• Jones Act inhibited the clean up effort
• The White House turned away useful response
  vessels because of the Jones Act

• President Obama refused to waive the Jones
  Act as a favor to labor unions
       Defense of the Jones Act
• Jones Act means a skilled American workforce
  and strategic merchant marine to provide
  sealift capabilities.

• Jones Acts means U.S. jobs.

• Jones Acts means National Security.
    PricewaterhouseCoopers Economic Study
         for the Transportation Institute

 Jones Act-related employment   499,676 jobs
 Economic output                $100.3 billion
 Value-added                    $ 45.9 billion
 Labor compensation             $ 29.1 billion
 Jones Act-related taxes        $ 11.4 billion

     The Jones Act is Vital to
        National Security

“…The repeal of the Jones Act will
 erode U.S. shipbuilding industrial
 base, U.S. flagged vessel and U.S.
    Merchant Marine capacity,
   hampering our ability to meet
 strategic sealift requirements and
        Navy shipbuilding.”
     Statement of the US Navy, September 2010
        The Jones Act is Vital to
           National Security
“For decades, U.S. merchant mariners have
provided essential support for the U.S. Navy
  during times of war and national crisis.
Repealing the Jones Act would remove that
support at a time when we are fighting two
 wars and facing a continuing threat from
         international terrorism.”

Statement of the US Navy, September 2010
         The Jones Act is Vital to
            National Security
• “We simply cannot, as a nation, fight the
  fight without the partnership of the
  commercial maritime industry…Our
  nation’s organic sealift capability…would
  literally be useless without the support of the
  commercial maritime industry.”

--USTRANSCOM Commander General John
  W. Handy, USAF.
Looking Ahead

New Markets
       America’s Marine Highway

• A wide range of vessel designs have been proposed
  for Marine Highways markets including:
   – traditional tug-barge
   – articulated tug-barge both in container on barge and Ro-Ro
   – Rail-on/rail off
   – high speed trimaran trailerships
   – high speed Ro-Ro monohulls
   – both larger and smaller traditional Ro-Ro’s

• Roadblocks
   – The Harbor Maintenance Tax (HMT) was implemented in 1986 as a
     federal tax on freight cargo and cruise ship passenger tickets.
        • Exempting “coastwise” shipping from the HMT is projected to cost the
          federal government only a small fraction of this revenue, but would
          provide substantial encouragement to expand the use of coastal waterways
          for cargo shipping.
   – Lack of tax and investment incentives, landside infrastructure costs are
     currently prohibitive.
   – Lack of cross sector support
• Moving ahead…
    – Last Congress bills were introduced in both the House & Senate amending the
      Internal Revenue Code to exempt certain shipping from the harbor maintenance
          Offshore Renewable Energy
• Emerging market in the United States as green energy
  becomes more of a focus.
   – Cape Wind, Blue North, as well as proposals off of New
     Jersey, Texas, Rhode Island and the Great Lakes
• The Obama Administration has made renewable energy,
  specifically offshore renewable energy part of its “green
  jobs” initiatives.
• Maryland and other States are passing laws to require a
  percentage of future energy sources come from renewable
  energy production.
• Offshore renewable energy is the first new Jones Act
  market in a generation.
