A Texas contractor has won a $1.78 million Navy contract to build an environmental containment structure for abrasive blasting of submarines at the Puget Sound (WA) Naval Shipyard.

 Puget Sound Naval Shipyard
The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility dates to 1891.

The Navy’s Defense Logistics Agency Detachment awarded the contract for the modular scaffolding containment system to Layher Inc., of Houston, TX

Structure Details

The project requires construction of a hard gasket panel scaffolding modular environmental enclosure for submarines. Enclosure panels must be removable, reusable, translucent, and able to withstand the force of a sandblaster, DLA said in its detailed RFP.

Scaffolding towers must have the capability to be lifted and transported by crane, while scaffolding must be designed so as to be easily separated from a marine vessel and neighboring scaffolding sections using a wheel and track system.

US Navy

The enclosure must be capable of providing a seal for environmental controls during the blasting process. Roof sheeting must be easily opened and closed without using a crane or fall protection and must be operable by four employees at most.

Navy schematics show two views of the containment structure.
The scaffold legs are to be on wheels, with track underneath for expedited removal.

The enclosure must be reconfigurable and provide personnel access to all parts of the vessel exterior; frame scaffolding is not acceptable, the Navy said.
