TIP Offloads Additional Equipment for MWCC SURF Shore Base

More progress continues to be made on equipping the MWCC SURF Shorebase warehouse with the needed materials and equipment. Theodore Industrial Port helped to unload two barges worth of oil field related materials for the project this week. Two, 100 ft. suction piles were unloaded as well as six, 60 ft. buoyancy modules. Theodore Industrial Port’s heavy lift equipment and team moved the materials from barge to storage, where it will continue to reside and be maintained on site.

In April, Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) announced that a part of Theodore Industrial Port’s site was selected as the shorebase location to house the well containment company’s subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) equipment. Theodore Industrial Port’s heavy lift capabilities as well as close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, allows MWCC the ability to continuously be ready to respond to a deepwater well control incident. Theodore Industrial Port continues to maintain a 650 ton lifting capacity with our heavy lift crane. Contact us today for more information or questions about an upcoming project.
