Ex-USS McKee

In May 2018, Marcom successfully completed preservation of the Freeboard of the ex-USS McKee in Drydock #8 at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

A total of 60,000 square feet was blasted using a combination of ultra-high pressure (UHP) water-jetting lances and robotic crawlers. The vessel was coated with an epoxy primer system and a polysiloxane topcoat. Work was completed safely, ahead of schedule, and under budget.

USCGC Kennebec

In May 2018, Marcom successfully completed preservation of the Buoy Deck of the USCGC Kennebec at the Coast Guard base in Portsmouth, VA.

The deck was contained with an environmental enclosure, abrasive blasted to bare metal, and coated with an inorganic zinc coating.  This project was a trial by the Coast Guard to test the feasibility of performing exterior abrasive blasting to pier-side vessels without blast media contamination occurring in the river.  The effort was SUCCESSFUL.
