Orion Marine Group secures contract

Contracts & Tenders – August 28, 2008

Orion Group in the US has announced a contract award of US$30.5 million.

Orion Marine Group’s wholly owned subsidiary, Misener Marine Construction, has been awarded a contract to build a new cruise ship pier for a private customer in Labadee, Haiti.

The project will consist of constructing a new 1,675 linear foot dock, hydraulic dredging of a turning basin and construction of rock groins and beach re-nourishment.

The company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Subaqueous Services, will perform the hydraulic dredging services on the project.

“This is the first award in the Caribbean that utilizes the complete in-house, turn-key marine construction and dredging services of both our East Coast subsidiaries.” said Jim Rose, Orion Marine Group’s Executive Vice President, Atlantic Seaboard & Caribbean.

“With the addition of Subaqueous Services earlier this year, we now have better ability to take advantage of opportunities like this which require a hydraulic dredge component while better controlling the project’s critical path.”

Onsite construction of the pier is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2008.
