ACMA Monitors First Dry Dock of TxDOT Ferry

Friday, June 26, 2009

Alan C. McClure Associates (ACMA), a naval architecture and engineering firm, announced that the first dry dock for a ferry being built for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has been completed at Conrad Deepwater in Amelia, Louisiana. ACMA and Schuller & Allen provided engineering and design for the new 264-ft vessel, and ACMA is now providing owner’s representation during the construction period until vessel delivery.

ACMA Vice President Darrel Harvey said “The ferry’s first dry dock went very smoothly. The vessel received her new propeller shafts, propellers and rudders, along with a fresh coat of bottom paint. Now she’ll be given the final top side colors that she’ll proudly wear during her tour of duty. Over the next few months, ACMA will be overseeing alignment of the propulsion system, electrical equipment integration and termination, and equipment start-up, as well as dock trails and sea trials.”
