RESOLVE Engineering Group, LLC has announced the launch of two of the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering firm’s latest design and construction support jobs. 

 

The American Phoenix, a 616’ x 105’ chemical tanker was built by BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards, Alabama for owner Mid-Ocean Tanker Company LLC of South Norwalk, CT.  RESOLVE provided construction support for the owner during final outfitting and completion of the American Phoenix 49,000 DWT Tanker which is the largest vessel ever built in Alabama.


The RMG-1000 barge is an ABS class deck barge built for parent company RESOLVE Marine Group, Inc. to support a +1000-ton heavy lift crane.  RESOLVE's Project Engineer Sam Charters said, “This is a versatile 300’ x 100’ sea-going barge designed specifically for marine salvage, wreck removal and heavy lift operations in the Gulf of Mexico and U.S. waters.  With a deck  strength of 3500 psf, it is ideal for the larger, heavy lift jobs; it is available for charter for assignments in the Gulf initially while the heavy lift crane is in construction.”  RESOLVE’s nine-acre Theodore (Mobile ), AL port facility is home port for the RMG-1000.

Michael Walker, Director of New Orleans-based RESOLVE Engineering Group, LLC said, “With the completion of the American Phoenix and RMG-1000, our teams continue to focus on the re-emerging oil & gas support work in the Gulf of Mexico for both support vessels and product transportation vessels.  After some softening in the market it appears that --and I say this with cautious optimism-- the Gulf of Mexico O&G business is reviving.”
