Misener and Subaqueous To Build Haiti Cruise Terminal

Orion Marine Group’s wholly owned subsidiary, Misener Marine Construction, Inc. has been awarded a contract to build a new cruise ship pier for a private customer in Labadee, Haiti. The project will consist of building a 1,675 linear foot dock, hydraulic dredging of a turning basin, construction of rock groins, and beach re-nourishment. The company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Subaqueous Services, LLC 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.”

Construction of the pier is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2008.
