July 18, 2012

Great Lakes Shipyard completed repairs on the Ohio Department of Natural Resources research vessel GRANDON.

In late June, ODNR awarded Great Lakes Shipyard with the contract to provide repairs to the vessel, including drydocking, blasting, painting, and electrical and lighting replacements.
The R/V GRANDON is part of the Fairport Harbor Fisheries Research Station for the ODNR’s Division of Wildlife. Their primary focus is assessing and managing fish populations and fisheries by taking samples, monitoring population demographics, and insuring the protection of habitats and resource integrity.
Great Lakes Shipyard is a full-service yard specializing in new construction, repairs, modifications, and fabrications of all types of vessels and barges. Recent projects include constructing tanks for Pittsburg Tank & Tower Company, construction of the third Handy Size class tugboat HANDY-THREE which was delivered to Puerto Rico Towing & Barge Co. in San Juan in early June, and the simultaneous construction of two state-of-the-art ASD tractor tugs for Caribbean Tugz, LLC, an affiliate of SEACOR Holdings, Inc.
