Dry Dock Now Open at Lind Marine Shipyard
Lind Marine’s ability to take on large ship repair and construction projects increased dramatically with the recent addition of a newly renovated dry dock facility and supporting services. The dry dock takes an hour to flood and an hour to pump dry. The maiden flooding of the dock on June 25th was an exciting and long anticipated event. It celebrated the first time the 400 by 100 foot dock had held water since 1995, when the Naval base was closed. At one time, the US Navy built and serviced nuclear submarines in this dock. Now, the local industries’ demand for more shipyard options is being answered by Lind Marine. A new era of ship repair and construction on Mare Island has begun.
The historic flooding of the dock was followed by the birthing of the Nautilus Data Center barge that is currently under construction by Lind Marine. The project includes installation of a pre-fabricated steel, two-story super-structure on deck of a 55’ x 210’ barge and an extensive raw-water intake to heat-exchanged piping system for data hall cooling. Initial construction began on the water and now it sits comfortably in the new dry dock during its completion. Read More About the Nautilus.
