Americraft Marine supports the need for Jones Act-compliant vessels, including those that advance U.S. energy independence
Americraft Marine is a U.S. maritime subsidiary of the Libra Group. It was formed to respond to the critical need for Jones Act-compliant vessels, including those that service offshore wind.
The production of vessels in the U.S. has declined in recent years. In addition, significant shipbuilding capacity will be needed over the next 10-15 years to support the upcoming demand cycle for renewable energy vessels. On June 6, 2022, President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA) to address the urgent need for clean energy technologies made in America.
The shipbuilding sector is critical to America’s strong industrial economy and provides economic opportunity to coastal communities through long-term jobs. It is also vital to U.S. energy independence, which has become more crucial due to ongoing trade tensions, the geopolitical landscape and economic climate.
Americraft Marine is working to build a best-in-class Jones Act-compliant shipyard, investing in stable industrial jobs, workforce training, and leveraging the historical maritime heritage of the Libra Group.
