DECEMBER 14, 2015—Detyens Shipyards, Inc., Charleston, SC, took delivery of a newly constructed Floating Drydock on December 11.
Built by Corn Island Shipyard, Grandview, IN, the 400 ft x 108 ft drydock was pushed down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers by Excell Marine’s inland tug boat Arthur E Snider. McAllister Towing and Transportation’s ocean towing tug Eileen McAllister took over the tow in New Orleans for delivery to Detyens Shipyards’ Cooper River facility.
The new floating drydock will eventually replace Detyens’ existing 448-foot long floating drydock. The largest commercial shipyard on the U.S. East Coast, Detyens Shipyards offers extensive crane services, fully equipped marine workshops, a flexible work environment, three graving dry docks, a floating dry dock and six deep water piers.
