Simultaneous Drydocking Requires Separation Of 70,000-Ton Drydock At Penn Ship

The versatility of the Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Company was challenged as two vessels required drydocking at one time. The challenge was answered by separating the one drydock into two sections and drydocking both vessels.

According to Joseph E. Wise, senior vice president of marketing, "We have been telling everyone we could do it and now they can see it for themselves." The ships drydocked were the dredge, Rio Orinoco, and the USNS Aide.

Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Company is one of the U.S.A.'s largest and most versatile shipyards engaged in the construction, conversion, overhaul and repair of all types and sizes of naval and commercial vessels. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Capital Marine Corporation.
