OSI AWARDED THREE MLP VESSELS FOR NAVY MILITARY SEALIFT COMMAND

DECEMBER, 2012

Houston based Ocean Ships, Inc. was recently awarded a contract with the Navy Military Sealift Command to operate three new mobile landing platform (MLP) vessels. The first of this new ship-type USNS Montford Point was christened at the General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard in San Diego by Mrs. Alexis Bolden, wife of NASA Administrator and retired Marine Corps Major General Charles Bolden. The MLP will join the Maritime Prepositioning Force squadron strategically located around the world to enable rapid response in a crisis.

MLPs will provide a "pier at sea" capability that will become the core of the Navy and
Marine Corps seabasing concept. OSI will provide crews from the American Maritime
Officers and the Seafarers International Union.
