Donjon Assists in USS America Tow Out

Friday, May 06, 2005
Donjon Marine Co., Inc., a provider if multi-faceted marine services including marine salvage, ocean and inland towing, emergency response, and dredging, provided towing and logistical support thru its U.S. Navy Salvage and Related services contract, in the towing out to sea of the Navy’s USS America, the third Kitty Hawk-class attack aircraft carrier on April 19. The Navy will conduct tests on the carrier, commissioned in 1965, for a number of weeks and then the ship will be sunk. Donjon coordinated the movement of the USS America from its lay berth located in the Philadelphia Naval Yard, thru the Delaware River to the open ocean where the vessel was towed by Donjon’s 7000-Horse Power Atlantic Salvor and 8000-Horse Power Powhatan to the Project site. Once onsite, due to bad weather, the Atlantic Salvor remained as a precautionary measure. Once the Salvor was released, the Powhatan continued on as the main towing vessel and remains with the USS America today. “Donjon is very pleased to have provided ocean towing and salvage support to the U.S. Navy in their continuing security and military efforts,” said Steven Newes, Vice President of Marine Operations, Donjon Marine Co., Inc.
