Sea Engineering, Inc., as a prime subcontractor to Hawk Contracting Group and Silver Mountain Construction, LLC, for the National Park Service performed repairs to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial floating dock. The project goal was to repair the floating dock assembly at the memorial to allow re-installation of the access bridge. This restored public access to this vital piece of American history. Sea Engineering provided services above and below water including:
- Demolition of the existing anchor system
- Installation of a new helical anchor deep foundation system up to 125 feet below the harbor bottom
- Installation of a new Seaflex flexible hawser mooring system
- Testing of all mooring elements.
Sea Engineering continued to raise the bar for over-and-in-water construction at Pearl Harbor by conducting daily boat and diving operations under EM 385-1-1 and with the full confidence of the National Park Service and US Navy.
