Thursday, May 27, 2004
Atlantic Dry Dock Corp. (Atlantic), in Jacksonville, Florida, on April 16, 2004 successfully completed a 6-week overhaul on the FRANCIS E. ROEHRIG, a 85 x 24 foot (25.9 x 7.3m) tugboat owned and operated by Roehrig Maritime, Port of New York. Comprehensive refit and repairs included changing out the two Caterpillar D-398 engines with new 3512 Caterpillar engines, a new steering system, overhauling or replacement of shafts, propellers and rudders, installation of Fernstrum keelcoolers, and other general life extension repairs. To complete the life extension of the tug, the underwater hull and topside was blasted and painted. The FRANCIS E. ROEHRIG was delivered on-time and on-budget. Chris Roehrig, President of Roehrig Maritime and a first time customer said, “I picked Atlantic because of their competitive pricing, reputation for quality workmanship and fast, on-time delivery.” Mr. Roehrig further stated, “I am very pleased with the project outcome, it met all of my expectations and I would use Atlantic for any of my future work.” Roehrig Maritime LLC owns and operates 6 well maintained tugs ranging from 1800 horsepower to 6000 horsepower. Their office is located in Long Island, NY with a maintenance pier in Staten Island, NY. They are capable of towing most anything along the entire East Coast of the U.S. and the Gulf of Mexico.
