It was formally filed on May 16, 2005. The Senesco shipyard (450 employees, 31 acres, capacity: up to 4 vessels/year) is located at 10 MacNaught Street within the Quonset Business Park (FTZ Site 2), in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Under FTZ procedures, Senesco would construct and repair tugboats (HTSUS 8901.90), double-hulled liquid barges (HTSUS 8901.20) and articulating tug barges for domestic and international customers. Foreign components that would be used at the shipyard (up to 30% of total purchases) include: diesel engines (HTSUS 8408.10), stern tubes (8483.30), reduction gears (8483.40), shaft grounding systems and seals (8483.90), generators (8501.62, 8501.63), overfill alarms (8531.90), tank washing machines (8537.10), valve remote operators (8537.10), tank gauging systems (8537.10), and ACCU automation/steering systems (8537.10) (duty rates: 1.3–4.5%). The request indicates that Senesco will not admit any foreign-origin steel mill products to the zone for use in FTZ manufacturing activity. FTZ procedures would exempt Senesco from Customs duty payments on the foreign components (except steel mill products) used in export activity. On its domestic sales, the company would be able to choose the duty rate that applies to finished oceangoing vessels (duty free) for the foreign-origin components noted above. Duties would be deferred or reduced on foreign E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1 29478 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 98 / Monday, May 23, 2005 / Notices production equipment admitted by Senesco to the zone until which time it becomes operational.

Foreign-Trade Zone 105--North Kingstown, RI; Request for

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation 
(RIEDC), grantee of FTZ 105, pursuant to Section 400.28(a)(2) of the 
Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400), requesting authority on behalf 
of Southeastern New England Shipbuilding Corporation (Senesco) to 
construct and repair oceangoing vessels under FTZ procedures within FTZ

    The Senesco shipyard (450 employees, 31 acres, capacity: up to 4 
vessels/year) is located at 10 MacNaught Street within the Quonset 
Business Park (FTZ Site 2), in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Under FTZ 
procedures, Senesco would construct and repair tugboats (HTSUS 
8901.90), double-hulled liquid barges (HTSUS 8901.20) and articulating 
tug barges for domestic and international customers. Foreign components 
that would be used at the shipyard (up to 30% of total purchases) 
include: diesel engines (HTSUS 8408.10), stern tubes (8483.30), 
reduction gears (8483.40), shaft grounding systems and seals (8483.90),

rates: 1.3-4.5%). The request indicates that Senesco will not admit any 
foreign-origin steel mill products to the zone for use in FTZ 
manufacturing activity.
    FTZ procedures would exempt Senesco from Customs duty payments on 
the foreign components (except steel mill products) used in export 
activity. On its domestic sales, the company would be able to choose 
the duty rate that applies to finished oceangoing vessels (duty free) 
for the foreign-origin components noted above. Duties would be deferred 
or reduced on foreign

production equipment admitted by Senesco to the zone until which time 
it becomes operational. The manufacturing and repair activity conducted
