Charleston Naval Shipyard
The Charleston Naval Shipyard was a US Department of Navy facility that repaired, overhauled, and maintained Navy ships, including nuclear-powered ships. Drydocks, cranes, waste-handling facilities, and offices were located at the shipyard. Activities supporting nuclear propulsion systems were performed in accordance with the requirements and authority of the
Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (NNPP), a joint DOE and U.S. Department of Navy program responsible for all activities relating to naval nuclear propulsion. Charleston Naval Shipyard closed in April 1996.
In October 1995 Charleston Marine Manufacturing Corp. [CMMC] signed a five-year sublease with the Charleston Naval Complex Redevelopment Authority for use of Dry Dock No. 5. In December 1995 the Charleston Naval Complex Redevelopment Authority signed a lease with Charleston Ship Builders Inc., of Leesburg, FL for Building 218, a large building at the Charleston Naval Shipyard. CSI asked for leases on dry docks 3 and 4 at the shipyard and two large piers nearby.
