SEATTLE - SNAME / ASNE Technical Meeting
Ken Swingle will present
Design and Construction of Vigorous
The United State’s largest floating drydock, Vigorous, entered into service in Portland last fall. Vigor’s 900-foot floating drydock has a lifting capacity of 80,000 LT, and was built to accommodate post-Panamax vessels, as well other large vessels (both government and private sector) on the West Coast. Ken Swingle will be discussing everything from the design of the dry dock, the overseas construction effort, as well as transportation and commissioning of the dock at Vigor’s Swan Island Shipyard.
Ken Swingle has over 17 years of experience working with Vigor Industrial, where he is the Facilities Director and Corporate Senior Dock Master.
