New York Shipyard Reports Busy Vessel Repair Schedule

The New York Shipyard Corporation, Brooklyn, N.Y., is completing extensive repairs on the 700-foot containership S/S Guayama, operated by Puerto Rico Marine Management. The work involves drydocking for tail shafting, sea valves, boiler repairs and replacement of a 60-ton evaporator and hull coating. The S/S Guayama underwent a vessel life extension program with the removal and replacement of 120 tons of steel. Extensive steel replacement was made in the forward peak, aft peak and double-bottom tanks, including replacements of internals, bulkheads and tank tops.

The yard has entered into a contract to repair the tank barge Cibro Savannah. The 130,000- barrel tank barge sustained damage after a fire and explosion last spring in the Kill Van Kull, Kearny, N.J.

Five hundred tons of steel will be replaced, along with cargo piping and valves.

At present, New York Shipyard is preparing to drydock the S/S Bermuda Star.

New York Shipyard is the only fully equipped deep draft drydock operating in the Port of New York.
