Callan Marine has won the long-term contract for maintenance and dredging of the Port of Corpus Christi.
“The Port of Corpus Christi is a vital piece of our waterway infrastructure and Callan Marine is honored to be a part of maintaining it,” stated Maxie McGuire, President of Callan Marine. “Keeping our nation’s waterways accessible and improving commerce is a priority for Callan, and we are proud to partner with this crucial port.”
The Port of Corpus Christi is the third most profitable port in the United States and is the second-largest export gateway of crude oil.
The channel itself is 36-miles long, with 30+ ship berths serving the cargo, dry and liquid bulk, breakbulk, and wind energy industries.
This multi-year contract will provide maintenance and new work dredging of the various docks at the port, spanning the dock locations along the LaQuinta Channel in Ingleside, Texas, and the ship channel itself in Corpus Christi, Texas.
“The Port of Corpus Christi is proud to partner with Callan Marine on this new dredging program,” said Sean Strawbridge, Chief Executive Officer for the Port of Corpus Christi. “Keeping our waterways dredged to authorized depths allows for the competitive export of U.S. goods and Texas-based Callan Marine is the right partner for the task.”
According to Callan Marine, work under this contract will commence this year.
