January 31, 2023 – Dutch Harbor, AK – Resolve Alaska, the shipyard, marine construction, emergency response and aviation subsidiary of Resolve Marine, today announced that services provided to commercial and fishing fleets in Western Alaska and the Pacific Northwest grew more than 40% year over year. Client retention was 100% and 10 new clients were added. Capital improvements, the acquisition of MAC Enterprises and the addition of five skilled technicians and commercial divers underscored business growth and client satisfaction. Resolve Marine’s Dutch Harbor operation is the only drydock facility in far Western Alaska.
> 13 drydocks were completed, up 17% from 2021.
> Marine construction and general shipyard services increased 32%. Machining, welding and fabrication, sandblasting and painting, commercial diving and underwater welding were in high demand. A job in Egegik, AK involved salvaging a crane used to move commercial fishing vessels that caused a dock to collapse and using a crane barge to support drilling operations for an upcoming dredging project for the Army Corps of Engineers.
> Vessel charter and boat watch services were added following the MAC Enterprises acquisition in May 2022. A fleet of small and large boats, cranes and spud barges moved supplies, freight and personnel and supported government research and filming crews in Dutch Harbor and the Aleutian Islands.
> Emergency response and salvage included environmental response and remediation, emergency towing and wreck removal.
A.W. McAfee, Alaska General Manager, said, “Resolve Marine’s reputation as a provider of reliable, quality services has never been higher and our ability to meet demand from current and new clients with a broad range of services has resulted in strong business growth. We price competitively and our safety record is strong.”
