W&O Awarded Subcontract from Eastern Shipbuilding Group

W&O, supplier to the marine and upstream oil and gas markets for pipe, valves, and fittings, valve automation, and engineered solutions, is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a subcontract from Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) for the United States Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Cutters (OPC), Coast Guard Cutter ARGUS (WMSM-915), and the long lead time materials for Coast Guard Cutter CHASE (WMSM-916). W&O was selected as the major supplier of valves on board this new ship class.

The new Offshore Patrol Cutters will be built at Eastern Shipbuilding Group’s facility in Panama City, Florida. Construction activities began in 2018.
