Vigor to Overhaul Essayons
Vigor Marine LLC, has won a firm-fixed-price contract for the repair, maintenance, and overhaul of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ hopper dredger Essayons.
The contract is for $10 million and runs until November next year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, is the contracting activity.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ hopper dredger Essayons was delivered to the Portland District in 1983. This dredging vessel helped complete many projects in the past, maintaining the entrance bars, rivers and harbors on the coasts of California, Oregon, Hawaii, Alaska and, in emergencies, the Mississippi River.
Because of its size and dredging depth, the Essayons is particularly well-suited for dredging the larger coastal entrances. The Essayons’ crew consists of 46 civil service mariners.
