(BRISTOL, R.I.) — Bristol Harbor Group Inc. (BHGI) was recently awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for naval architecture and marine engineering services for the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Marine Design Center.

This is BHGI’s second IDIQ contract with the Marine Design Center, located in Philadelphia, Pa., relatively close to BHGI’s Rhode Island office. In 2010, BHGI was awarded its first five-year IDIQ contract with the Marine Design Center, during which BHGI and the Marine Design Center team worked on a wide variety of projects both for the USACE, and for other federal agencies, including the United States Coast Guard and NASA.

“Working with the Marine Design Center over the past five years has been a wonderful experience, and we look forward to continuing to work with their dynamic team of professionals,” said Greg Beers, president of BHGI.

Some of the projects BHGI has worked on for the USACE include but are not limited to retrofits, finite element analyses (FEA), electric load analyses, vibration analyses and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses, as well as barge, towboat and dredge design.

BHGI is a full service naval architecture and marine engineering firm specializing in commercial vessel design and consulting. Over the past 20 years, BHGI has produced more than 50 unique designs, to which more than 100 vessels have been built. These include barges, tugs, ATBs, passenger vessels, dredges and yachts.
