Qualifications Prior to Invitation to Bid
Shipyard Drydock Services Wanted RV Marcus G. Langseth
Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University will be seeking bids from qualified shipyards on the West Coast and Gulf Coast of the United States for the drydocking and maintenance and repair of the R/V Marcus G. Langseth owned by the National Science Foundation. The work involved will require a wide variety of crafts and services, including drydocking and alongside work. Some of the work will be accomplished by specialist vendors working directly for the University while the vessel is at the selected shipyard facility.
Bids will be accepted only from pre-qualified shipyards. The criteria for pre-qualification are in the pre-bid qualification questionnaire. Requests by interested shipyards to receive a pre-bid qualification questionnaire in response to this advertisement must be received by 19 September 2012 at the address indicated below.
It is currently anticipated that a pre-bid ship check will be scheduled in the Astoria, OR approximately 3 weeks before the bids are due. This invitation does not, however, constitute a commitment as to location or date of the pre-bid ship check availability. The University plans to have the vessel available no earlier than January 2013 for delivery to the facility where the work will be conducted.
The ship is inspected by the US Coast Guard and classed by ABS. The vessel’s basic dimensions are 71.5M L.O.A., 18.9M beam, and 7.6M moulded draft. All inquiries should be sent in writing or by email. Telephone inquiries will not be accepted. Requests should be sent to the attention of
