All structural shop personnel are experienced in the handling, layout, fabrication, repair, and installation of aluminum, steel, and stainless steel structures and components. Our tradesmen are capable of reading and interpreting written specifications, blueprints, and working drawings. Our shipfitters are capable of lifting dimensions and shapes from existing conditions on board any vessel for the fabrication of replacement structures, hulls, bulkheads, ventilation runs, and equipment foundations. We have replaced major sections of hull plating, both aluminum and steel, cropped out and replaced large tank bulkheads and internal structures, removed, fabricated new, and installed steel and aluminum foundations both large and small including those for small pumps as well as main engines and reduction gears. We have fabricated and installed new superstructures, new joiner bulkheads, and ventilation systems. We are currently performing major structural repairs to US Navy LCACs as part of the LCAC SLEP and LCAC maintenance programs being executed for Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC). Our personnel perform hull surveys and corrosion analysis. Subsequent efforts include structural repair of aluminum bulkhead and hull plating. We perform tank wall expansion, replace chocks and bollards, and perform post installation load testing.
