The project scope involved the pertaining to construction of the first of two new 108’x35’ fireboats to replace the port’s 1980s-era responder vessels with 400% more firefighting power. The Protector, mounts 10 water cannons with a capacity to throw more than 41,000 gpm, or four times the output of the port’s present fire boats. Pumping range is 600’ and higher than a 20-story building, enough power to project water or foam “anywhere aboard the world’s largest container ships and oil tankers,” according to a statement from port officials. HSE was responsible for creating a detailed baseline schedule for the project including cost and resource loading on all construction activities. HSE was successful in obtaining approvals on all of the scheduling submittals without any delays to the contractor. The project is currently on time.
