CLEVELAND – Great Lakes Shipyard, based here, recently completed construction of a 60-foot workboat for the Port of Milwaukee, according to the shipyard. The vessel sailed from Cleveland and was delivered to the port last week. Great Lakes Shipyard was awarded the contract by the city in June 2011.
The vessel was designed by Jensen Maritime Consultants, of Seattle, to perform general harbor work, icebreaking, salvage, and dive operation capabilities. The workboat is equipped with a DMW Telescopic Boom Marine crane along with specialized lighting and equipment for harbor security work. The workboat is powered by a single 405 HP Cummins QSK11 Tier II diesel engine and has a maximum speed of 10 knots.
