MSC Towing Contract Awarded To Dillingham
Dillingham Tug and Barge Corporation (DT&B), Honolulu, Hawaii, has been awarded a government contract by the Military Sealift Command, Washington, D.C., to provide tug and barge service between Honolulu, Johnston Island, and Eniwetok Atoll as part of the United States effort to restore living conditions on Eniwetok Eniwetok following nuclear testing.
In announcing the contract, Dillingham Maritime-Pacific Division president Thomas D. Opatz said the long-term contract calls for DT&B to carry construction materials and equipment to the Pacific locations.
"In 1976, Congress appropriated funds and appointed the Defense Nuclear Agency to supervise the removal of all radioactive contamination from several islands in the Eniwetok Atoll that was the result of nuclear testing more than two decades ago," said Lt.
Col. Bill McGee, (Army), Defense Nuclear Agency Public Affairs officer.
The Military Sealift Command is charged with providing all ocean transportation necessary to support the rehabilitation program which is expected to be completed by 1981.
Rehabilitation work began on the project in 1977, and involves several other Defense Department agencies, including the Army, Navy, and the Military Airlift Command.
Dillingham Tug and Barge is a subsidiary of Honolulu-based Dillingham Corporation and provides tug and barge charter and contract towing services throughout the Pacific, as well as harbor and interisland service within the State of Hawaii.
