See the giant oil platforms of the Gulf of Mexico and the wide array of international flag ships that ply their trade through the Port of Brownsville. See how oil platforms and jack up rigs are built at the largest platform production yard in America.
The Port of Brownsville is also home to five of the nations largest Ship-breaking companies. The nation’s largest ship-breaking contract was awarded to a Brownsville company, commissioned to dismantle the USS Ranger that arrived July 12, 2015. This is the fourth big military ship-breaking contract to come to the port over the last few years. The USS Forrestal, the U.S. Navy’s first supercarrier, arrived in Brownsville February 18, 2014, the USS Saratoga, a Lexington-class aircraft carrier, arrived on September 12th 2014 and the USS Constellation arrived January 16, 2015.
