Dredge Vessel Essayons

In early 2022, PSI completed the overhaul, maintenance, and repair work on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ hopper dredge Essayons. The Essayons is critical for our nation’s navigation channels, helping keep the channels safe and navigable for our maritime traffic. We are proud of our hard-working staff and trusted subcontractors who helped complete this project that started in December 2021 and was completed in March 2022.

Selected Restricted Availability (SRA)

In August 2021, Pacific Shipyards International completed a 9-month Selected Restricted Availability (SRA) on the USS CHUNG-HOON (DDG 93). As the selected prime contractor, we performed management, repair, maintenance, and modernization of over 96 separate work items.

PSI took great pride in working on the USS CHUNG-HOON. It is named after Admiral Gordon Pai’ea Chung-Hoon who was born and raised on Oahu. He was awarded the Navy Cross and Silver Star for his heroism during WWII when he safely brought the ship he commanded to homeport after it was attacked and nearly sank.

USS Michael Murphy
Selected Restricted Availability (SRA)

PSI was proud to answer the call when the USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112) needed life cycle maintenance, repairs, and modernization for the Selected Restricted Availability (SRA). PSI was the prime contractor and lead maintenance activity to oversee the entire project with a total contract value of $32M. The availability included the installation of a new RAST system coating, modernization of the ship’s combat systems, and replacing its underwater bearings.

“From the commanding officer’s perspective, the project management team from the government and contractor side was always present, driven and invested in getting any complex problems addressed. It was a pleasure to work with people who care to deliver their best work.” — Commanding Officer Scott Maloney, USS Michael Murphy Commanding Officer

Maintenance and Preservation

Pacific Shipyards International was awarded the SBX-1 2020 Maintenance Repair Availability (MRA) to perform management, repair, maintenance, and modernization of the USNS SBX-1 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam (JBPHH). The Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX) is a floating, self-propelled mobile radar station as part of the Missile Defense Agency’s Ballistic Missile Defense System. PSI’s contract consisted of 80,000 man-hours over a 120-day availability and was completed five days early.

At the completion of the project, the SBX-1 Port Engineer applauded PSI’s performance by stating, “Without a doubt, this is most efficient I’ve seen your organization in the 12 years I’ve been working with you.”

Pearl Harbor Caisson

For the first time in history, a Pearl Harbor dry dock caisson was overhauled at a private facility. In 2019, PSI was happy to partner with the U.S. Department of Defense and GSI Pacific Inc., on the highly-specialized task of overhauling a Pearl Harbor dry dock caisson. The ability for a private contractor to perform the overhaul is incredibly beneficial because it allows for the continued operation of the other government dry dock for ship repair activities that would otherwise be used to conduct the overhaul of the caisson.
