Hopeman Brothers To Supply Accommodation Joiner Packages For Two Oil Skimming Vessels

Hopeman Brothers, Inc., Waynesboro, Va., was recently awarded a contract by Goudy and Stevens of East Boothbay, Maine, to supply complete accommodation joiner packages for what are reportedly the two largest oil skimming vessels being built in the U.S.

The two 123-foot-long by 31-foot-wide vessels are under construction for Alyeska Pipeline, Valdez, Alaska, and Clean Sound, an oil spill cooperative in Puget Sound, Wash. They will be delivered under their own power in the fall of 1990.

Hopeman has worked closely with the vessels' designers, JBF Scientific Co., Inc. of Southwest Harbor, Marine, to develop a custom-designed joiner package for these vessels. Isolamin bulkhead panels, which eliminate the need for the traditional thermal insulation against the weather boundary, will be used.

Momek interior doors will be supplied. Over 12,000 Momek doors were supplied to the marine industry in 1989.

The vessels will have Dampa ceilings which will be pre-engineered, factory cut to size and complete with modular light fixtures. Furniture for berthing a crew of eight, messing and navigation areas will be produced at Hopeman Brothers' facility in Virginia.

Hopeman Brothers is the sole U.S. distributor for Isolamin panels, Momek doors, and Dampa ceilings.
