Manson’s hopper dredge WESTPORT in Anchorage, Alaska

Returning from its first season of the current three-year annual maintenance dredging project for the Port of Alaska in Anchorage Harbor, Manson’s only tug-assisted hopper dredge WESTPORT recently arrived in the Seattle yard to undergo general maintenance.

Before arriving at the Seattle yard, the WESTPORT embarked on a 14-day journey to drydock in Vancouver, BC.

The dry dock work on the WESTPORT involved inspection and regulatory maintenance required by the United States Coast Guard’s (USCG) Certification of Inspection (COI) and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

After completion of the dry dock work, the WESTPORT made its way to the Seattle yard to begin its second phase of maintenance.

Thanks to the crews who worked simultaneously on different areas of the rig to ensure the sail date, the WESTPORT was ready to begin the second phase of dredging on April 1.
