Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Signal International announced that SBM-Atlantia’s Thunder Hawk is currently drydocked at the company’s Port Arthur Texas facility for hull repairs.

The huge structure arrived at Port Arthur after being transported from Singapore on a heavy lift dry-tow vessel. Drydocking of the newbuild semi will enable Signal to repair damage that was done to Thunder Hawk’s pontoons before leaving Southeast Asia.

Repairs consist of: grit-blasting to bare metal the perimeter of the damaged outer hull, torch cutting to enable removal of the damaged hull segments, fitting and welding of the prefabricated replacement hull sections and restoring coatings in accordance with the design specifications. The on-dock work is expected to take 30 to 45 days and employ up to 200 additional craftsmen.
