Hawaii- USS Bowfin Drydock


AMC was hired to prepared the 80 year old Bowfin submarine to be towed from the Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum at Pearl Harbor to Pacific Shipyards International.

The USS Bowfin has an incredible history and importance in protecting the Safety and Freedom of our great Country. AMC was honored to play an integral part in maintaining these historical submarine and the US Navy.

Salvage of Sailboat S/V Christiana


Sailboat Christiana broke free of her mooring offshore Honolulu Harbor and drifted into the jetty at the Harbor entrance at sunset.

Fuel and oil was seen leaking from the vessel which poised a critical risk to the navigation as the only point of entry to Honolulu Harbor for freighters, cruise ships, and rescue vessels.

Harbors Divisions of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) hired AMC to provide emergency response services in order to safely remove the vessel blocking vessel traffic while minimize the hazards to the environment.

Divers were deployed immediately at night to located the vessel and rig it for lifting and removal out of the channel.

Pacific Environmental Corporation (PENCO) was brought in to remove all the hazardous material. This was a successful critical project completed under pressure to get the Harbor operational again.

See article in the photo gallery below discussing the project in the local Honolulu news.

Subsea Fiber Optic Cable Installation

American Marine Corporation (AMC) was hired to provide ROV monitoring and assistance with installing a subsea fiber optic cable from Asia to California.

AMC utilized our advantageous waterfront facility located in the Port of Los Angeles to perform a large mobilization of the offshore vessel for operations.

We had to perform various retrofits to accommodate the equipment on board the vessel and our ABS certified welding team was critical in making this happen in short order. This project required cable monitoring up to 2,000m water depth.

Submarine Portion Removal of Old Sylmar Ground Return System

Submarine Portion Removal of Old Sylmar Ground Return System

AMC was hired as the prime contractor by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) to remove, demo, and dispose of the retired submarine portion of the Sylmar Ground Return System. We removed 26 concrete underwater vaults that measured 11’x7’x6’ and weighed over 20 tons each, over 10,000 feet of submarine power cable, over 25 concrete clump weights, marker buoys, and other related debris about one mile offshore in Santa Monica Bay in depths ranging from 40-65 feet. All components of this system were taken back to our waterfront facility at Berth 270-271 in the Port of Los Angeles for demolition and land disposal. LADWP is a valued client of ours and we are happy to complete another safe and successful project for them!
