NOAA Awards Tsunamis Buoy Maintenance Program to Ocean Services

Ocean Services, a member of the Stabbert Maritime Group of Companies has been awarded a contract by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the repair and maintenance of buoys in the Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis program (DART).

Upon contract award Stabbert Maritime had 30 days to upgrade one of their vessels’, the 205 ft Ocean Pioneer, with Dynamic Positioning (DP) capabilities. Also included in the refit was a new interior package and galley to modernize the vessel for her 22,000 mile worldwide voyage. With the completion of the refit the Ocean Pioneer is mobilizing with client equipment and set to sale immediately.

DART presently constitutes a critical element of the NOAA Tsunami Program. The Tsunami Program is part of a cooperative effort to save lives and protect property through hazard assessment, warning guidance, mitigation, research capabilities, and international coordination.

Stabbert Maritime’s experience in vessel operation and conversion played a vital role in their award of the contract. With the short delivery time, virtually all companies in the Stabbert Group worked together in preparation for the start of the contract. The shipyard division of Stabbert Maritime, Stabbert Yacht & Ship, was contracted to assist the refit and DP upgrades with Ocean Services taking on the management and operational end of the voyage.
