Senesco Marine Christens New Drydock
Senesco Marine last month christened its new dry dock and celebrated the dry dock's receipt of a key certification that has already significantly increased the company's repair business.
The certification bestowed upon the Leslie G by Heger Dry Dock, Inc, of Holliston, Mass., now allows the shipyard to compete for valuable government repair contracts.
The Leslie G is 255 ft. long with 82 ft.
between the wing walls.
The pontoon depth is 9 ft. The certification by Heger Dry Dock, Inc. gives the Leslie G a rated lifting capacity of 3500 Long Tons.
"The certification of the Leslie G paves the way for Senesco Marine to actively bid for future governmental repair contracts, all of which contain the prerequisite of a certified dry dock," said Gary Schuler, CEO of Senesco Marine.
Other repair jobs made possible by the new dry dock's certification include the NOAA research vessel Albatross IV and the state of Maine's Department of Environmental Protection Oil recovery barge the "Netepenaesit." While Senesco Marine's repair business has seen steady growth, the company is best known for producing high quality double-hulled liquid fuel barges.
Last year the shipyard christened two 80,000-barrel double-hulled fuel barges and currently has two more under construction.
