Marine Engineer/ Supervisory Port Engineer (Senior Project Manager)

I have held various positions at the Maritime Administration, Marine Surveyor (superintendent Port Engineer/ life-cycle manager) for a group of ocean going ships operated by MARAD. Database manager for a maintenance and repair tracking system. But the most interesting job was Nuclear SIte Facility Manager for the Nuclear Ship Savannah for the Radiological Decommissionong . Senior Nuclear Engineer for the US GOVT aboard the worlds first Nuclear Powered Merchant Ship. I was also the Lead engineer for the Grounding Salvage and Repair of a Cargo Ship that went aground. The ship required 1500 tons ( 3.6 million Pounds) of hull and Bottom steel to be replaced. It took a workforce of approximately 250 people 5 months to return the ship to service. The total cost of the Emergency dry-docking repairs and salvage was originally estimated to be $25 million dollars but we got it done for just under $12 Million.
