Orion Marine Group’s wholly owned subsidiary Orion Construction LP was awarded a contract to design and build a new dock for a private customer in south Texas. The project will consist of the construction of a 1000 foot long steel and concrete bulkhead with a 700 foot long concrete pile-supported wharf in front of the bulkhead. Orion will install a fender system on the face of the wharf to allow for ship and barge traffic as well as dredging the area to accommodate dock traffic.
“This award highlights the turn-key services we provide to our customers” said Elliott Kennedy Orion Marine Group’s executive vice president Gulf Coast. “We are excited about this opportunity and will work hard to exceed expectations.”
Construction of the dock is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2008.
