The team at Mike Hooks, LLC is proud to share with you that last week we hit a major milestone in the construction of our new state-of-the-art cutter suction dredge Lorraine Hooks.
The 430,000 lb. cutter ladder was carefully carried and lowered into place by overhead gantry cranes at Southwest Shipyard in Galveston, TX.
The trunnions are installed, and the ladder rests on safety pins while final rigging and outfitting continues.
The Lorraine represents our forward-thinking commitment to our people, to the natural environment, and to the development of sustainable infrastructure along the Gulf Coast for generations to come. We look forward to her debut later this year.
