Detyens gets new floating dry dock


The following is the text of a news release from Detyens Shipyards:

(CHARLESTON, S.C.) — Detyens Shipyards Inc. took delivery of a newly constructed floating dry dock on Dec. 11. 

Built by Corn Island Shipyard in Indiana, the 400-by-108-foot dry dock was pushed down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers by Excell Marine’s inland tugboat Arthur E. Snider. McAllister Towing and Transportation’s ocean towing tugboat Eileen McAllister took over the tow in New Orleans for delivery to Detyens Shipyards’ Cooper River facility. The new floating dry dock will eventually replace Detyens’ existing floating dry dock.

Detyens Shipyards offers extensive crane services, fully equipped marine workshops, a flexible work environment, three graving dry docks, a floating dry dock and six deepwater piers. For more information, visit
