GRAY, La. – The U.S. Coast Guard has certified Danos’ fabrication facility in Amelia, La. as an official port facility. This designation allows both foreign and US vessels to access the facility or remain docked there.
The Coast Guard granted Danos port facility status following approval of the company’s facility security plan under Title 33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 105.
“In addition to opening our Amelia facility up to foreign vessels for transporting fabrication projects, port facility status also allows us to provide docking services for idle vessels,” said Mark Danos, vice president of project services.
Located on 175 acres along Bayou Boeuf, the facility’s five thousand linear feet of bulkhead and 18-foot water depth can accommodate large-scale custom fabrication projects of more than 10,000 tons.
