RESOLVE was engaged to refloat the sunken, damaged dry dock PERSEVERANCE. During the sinking, the dry docks’ internal pumping system became inoperable due to flooding of the docks’ control station.  Also, internal damage sustained during the sinking event made several of the internal compartments common, degrading the stability of the dry dock. RESOLVE first installed 12 electric submersible pumps and then utilized the RMG 400 shear leg heavy lift crane barge to maintain longitudinal stability of the structure during the 18-day refloat operation.
