Halter Marine, New Orleans LA

Most recent update: August 26, 2014.


Halter New Orleans was the original Halter shipyard and one of the shipyards that constituted Halter Marine Services when that company was acquired by Trinity Industries.  Trinity closed it in 1983 and it has been idle ever since.  The shipyard was located on the West Bank of the Industrial Canal, to the north of the Equitable Shipyard: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can provide any additions or corrections to this table, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
