We work with our customers from the earliest planning stages of new construction, designing production paths to optimize construction time and cost, materials planning and vessel performance. Vigor Alaska uses a modular building process to achieve time-cost-quality. We build vessels in our new 70,000 square foot, state-of-the-art assembly hall. With an adjacent production center and two 75 ton gantry cranes with a maximum hook-height of 90 feet, we can build vessels up to 500 feet in length using globally recognized best practice shipbuilding techniques.
We offer our newbuild customers:
- Preliminary design and engineering for loading, stability, classification review, etc.
- Detailed design and engineering for bills of materials and production support such as cutting orders
- Fabrication, assembly and erection process
- Outfitting - add final hull, mechanical, electrical items
- Systems integration and testing
- Roll out and launch for final outfitting, testing, trials
- Warranty follow-up as needed
Repair and Overhaul
To the extent possible, Vigor Alaska follows a zone-oriented approach to overhaul and repair work. This facilitates timely planning, scheduling, execution and performance testing across all of our system and trade boundaries.
A zone can be a compartment on the vessel, a group of compartments, a system, a group of systems, or a prefabricated unit being built in our shop. Creating zones allows Vigor Alaska to aggregate tasks at any given stage of a job to keep our customer focus laser-sharp.
The zone concept allows task grouping, resources allocation, and interdependency decisions to be made earlier and from a project wide perspective.
Our repair and overhaul customers benefit from:
- Pre-work Inspections and Testing
- Estimate-bid-contract development
- Tests and/or Trials
- Dock and/or Sea Trials
- Completion Surveys
