Ship Dismantlement and Recycling


Ship Dismantlement and Recycling Joint Venture (SDR) has been awarded a $3.7 million contract for the dismantling and disposal of an inactive U. S. Navy ship. The contract is one of four awarded by the Navy to bidders under a pilot program to develop and test environmentally sound and cost effective methods for disposing of excess naval ships. On successful completion of the pilot program, SDR expects to bid on scrapping additional ships.

SDR is a joint venture between Earth Tech, Inc., a subsidiary of Tyco International Ltd. and Ship Remediation and Recycling, Inc., a subsidiary of VSE Corporation. Additional subcontractors participating in the SDR pilot program contract are expected to include Astoria Metal Corporation, Energetics Incorporated, John J. McMullen Associates, Inc., Procurenet, and Waste Management.

The contract awarded to SDR calls for the dismantlement of the ex-USS LOCKWOOD (FF 1064), currently located at Suisun Bay, Benecia, California. SDR expects to establish a project office in the San Francisco Bay area to facilitate the dismantlement and disposal.
