Great Lakes Shipyard, Cleveland, was recently awarded several drydocking contracts.
The Ohio yard announced that it has been contracted for work on vessels for Miller Boat Line, Ryba Marine, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Miller Boat Line, Put-in-Bay, Ohio, is a regular Great Lakes customer and has awarded the yard a contract to complete the five-year U.S. Coast Guard inspection and main engine repowering for the ferry William Market. The entire Miller Boat Line ferry fleet has been drydocked at Great Lakes Shipyard, however this is the first time that the William Market has been hauled out using the 770-ton capacity Marine Travelift boat hoist at the yard. The work is scheduled for completion in February 2016.
A pair of Corps' Buffalo District barges are currently undergoing work at Great Lakes, which is scheduled to be completed in January 2016.
Finally, the Ryba Marine dump scows GL-5 and GL-6 will be serviced at Great Lakes, along with the tug Thomas R. Morrish. This contract includes drydocking and major steel repairs and will be completed by May 2016, Great Lakes said.
