Mammoet’s scope of work comes from an agreement with DHO (Dragados/Hawaiian Dredging/Orion JV). The project will see the company assume responsibility for the transportation of 4000-tonne floor sections using SPMTs and a specialised gantry to conduct its lifting scope of work. The dry dock’s floor sections form part of the Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimisation Program that will allow the Pearl Harbour Naval Shipyard to maintain and modernise the US Pacific Fleet’s nuclear-powered submarines.

Sales Manager for Mammoet, Pierre Mille spoke to the opportunity the new agreement presents.

“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to share our expertise and experience on this high-profile project,” he said. “The heavy lift and transport development strategy we have shared with DHO will allow us to provide an efficient solution and offer the best possible execution strategy for this project.”

“We are very thankful for the opportunity and are eager to build upon our methods to ensure we perform above expectations for our customers.”

According to Mammoet, the installation process is already under way, as the foundational piles have already been placed into the harbour, with the project expected to be completed by late 2027.

Dry Dock 5 will possess more depth when compared with the existing dry dock that is set to be replaced. The replacement is to accommodate Los Angeles and Virginia-class attack submarines for maintenance, repair and modernisation.
