Armstrong Marine to Buy Marine Paint and Maintenance Barges
Armstrong Marine Inc., based in Port Angeles, Wash., is being awarded a $38.3 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price contract for the procurement of marine paint and maintenance barges and associated installation, support, shipping and travel.
The maintenance barge will be used specifically to enable painting and maintenance along the breadth and height of hulls of all submarines and surface ship classes. It will also be used to prevent contact with the delicate appendages while berthing or mooring. The resultant award will provide up to 15 marine paint/maintenance barge with 45-foot scissor-type high-lift and low-lift, 30 marine paint/maintenance barges with 45-foot articulating-arm high lift platform and 15 marine paint/maintenance barges with 65-ft articulating-arm lift platform.
Work will be conducted at various ship homeport locations within and outside the continental United States as required and is expected to complete by September 2018.
