MDC to Repair USACE Dustpan Dredge

Tuesday, March 21, 2000
The Marine Design Center (MDC) of the USACE is set to provide the dredging modification and repairs to Hurley - a USACE dustpan dredge. Measuring 300 ft. with a beam of 58 ft. and a depth of 12 ft., the vessel's light displacement is 2,100 tons. Comprised of steel and welded construction, the dredge was built in 1992, and is operated by the Memphis District USACE. Hurley's dredging ladder will be extended with intentions of replacing the existing ladder, while the vessel's hull (horn area) will be lengthened to accommodate the new ladder. In order to achieve this upgrade, drydocking will be necessary to facilitate removal and replacement of the dredging ladder. A solicitation will be issued as an Invitation For Bids with the IFB requiring design development based upon a preliminary design prepared by the USACE Marine Design Center. Available in March 2000, the IFB may include contract options for related repairs. Award is expected in May 2000, and shipyard engineering and material procurement is to commence prior to the vessel's arrival.
