Colonna’s Shipyard, Inc. of Norfolk, Va. announced a major expansion, the new West Yard Marine Travelift Facility. Situated on approximately ten acres, this facility will accommodate the simultaneous repair of up to 15 vessels including tugs, barges, ferries, workboats, and yachts.

Featuring the world’s largest mobile hoist, a US built 1000 metric ton Marine Travelift, the West Yard is designed as a rapid response facility providing immediate repair and a timely return to service. The Marine Travelift acquisition was partially enabled by a grant award from the Maritime Administration Assistance to Small Shipyards Program.

The West Yard Marine Travelift facility equips Colonna’s Shipyard to respond immediately to vessel repairs on an emergent basis. It also allows longer term projects to remain efficiently drydocked. The Marine Travelift system is capable of lifting many other vessel types such as US Navy and USCG patrol craft, in addition to specialty vessels such as casino and dinner boats.

With two concrete slipway piers extending 325 ft into the river, lay berth accommodation is met with full utility service and crane service for side-to loading. The facility was designed for high level environmental compliance with features such as a multi-stage water treatment plant that recycles all process water and portable enclosure structures that provide weather protection and containment.
