Orion Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ORN) (the “Company”), a leading specialty construction company, completed a 15 month rebuild of the recently commissioned Dredge Lavaca.
Advancements to the dredge’s ladder, accommodations, and operating systems were made to continue to provide exceptional dredging service to its clients and industry partners in both the public and private sectors along the Gulf Coast.
The Lavaca is scheduled to begin work mid-November 2022 on a newly awarded contract for the Port of Corpus Christi and will take part in the continued maintenance of waterways, deepening and widening projects for years to come throughout the Gulf Coast. The design of the dredge, including its modular quarters, walkways, access and egress points, ventilation, handrail & fendering systems have all been engineered specifically with an emphasis on safety. Design improvements to the crew accommodations reduced noise and vibrations during dredging operations and provide a reprieve for the crew during their rest periods.
The open-concept lever room allows for the leverman to monitor and control all dredging systems from a specially designed control station with touchscreen displays and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a 180-degree field of view. Tier III diesel-electric engines and electric winches is another step forward for the Company to continue our commitment to protecting the environment by preventing potential spills and reducing NOx emissions within our operating areas. Orion’s commitment to Safety and “Target Zero” is also instilled into our vetted contractors, and is reflected indirectly in this project, as the project surpassed 65,000 manhours without any lost time incidents or recordable injuries.
