R/V Roger Revelle Repower
The R/V Roger Revelle is currently undergoing a full repower at our Portland, Oregon shipyard. The world class research vessel is operated by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, conducting scientific research across all disciplines of marine science.
The refit will be ongoing throughout a one-year availability which involves replacement of all gensets, switchgear, drives and propulsion motors. Additionally, she will receive a new retractable bow thruster and transducer gondola. The ballast, firemain, potable water, A/C chiller, sewage and refrigeration systems will all be replaced. Cranes, overhead lighting and various maintenance upgrades will also be made. The refit will extend the life of the vessel another 25+ years.
We will periodically update the timelapse of the refit below as work progresses.
