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 1675 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.
