Donjon Awarded Navy Salvage Tug Lease

September 1, 1999

The U.S. Navy has awarded Donjon Marine Co. Inc. a five-year lease of tug USNS Powhatan. The multi-purpose tug can conduct long-distance tows and when augmented with additional crew and equipment, operate in support of fire fighting, diving and salvage missions. Minor modifications will be made to the vessel, including changing the paint scheme to Donjon's standard blue as well as reconfiguring the wheelhouse to make it more "merchant marine user friendly". The lease of the vessel is part of Donjon Marine's plan for steady expansion into the international salvage and salvage related towing industry. USNS Powhatan will join a fleet of coastal and ocean towing vessels, crane barges, dredges, crew boats, deck barges and assorted salvage equipment.
