Detyens Shipyard Profits From Dredger Work

Detyens Shipyard continues to expand its dredge work, with numerous contracts at all three of its locations; the Main Yard in Charleston, S.C., the Wando Yard in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., and its Jacksonville, Fla. yard.

Last year Detyens completed work for six different operators. Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, NATCO, Bean Stuyvesant, Norfolk Dredging, Marinex Construction, and Weeks Marine. In addition, it completed work on dredges from three different U.S. Army Corps of Engineer divisions; Philadelphia, Wilmington, and New Orleans.

The U.S. Army recently docked the U.S. Dredge Wheeler at Detyens for an overhaul. The Wheeler had major work performed, including replacing the 47 ft.

(14.3-m) tail-shaft, overhaul of the controllable pitch propeller hub, and the rebuilding of the ship's bowthruster. In addition, the dredging system and hull were maintained and a 14 hopper door sets for inspection and replacement of the door seals.

Among the other contracts, repairs were accomplished on several split hull dump scows, cutter head dredges, a bucket dredge, and several barges. Work varied from routine drydockings, major hull repairs, renewal of crane rail track, fabrication and installation of sponsors, and modification of a dredge ladder.
