Mechanical dredge(click to view full) June 9/11: Vortex Marine Construction, Inc. in Oakland, CA won a $500 million firm-fixed-price indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity task-order, under a multiple-vendor umbrella contract. They’ll perform various construction and dredging projects with the boundaries of the US Army Corps of Engineers’ South Atlantic Division. Work location will be determined as needed, with an estimated completion date of June 6/12. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Jacksonville, FL solicited 35 bids, with 17 bids received (W912EP-11-D-0025). Vortex Marine Construction owns and operates one of the largest fleets of floating construction equipment in the Western United States. They specialize in marine and heavy civil construction projects, with an emphasis on turn-key marine facilities. On the other end, dredging contracts are fairly regular features for the USACE, given their importance to shipping and (among other things) the maintenance of low prices for consumer goods. The U.S. Army Engineer District in Philadelphia has a background page about dredging that explains the rationale, and the different options.
