NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson
Tridentis was just awarded a contract through our GSA Professional Engineering Service Contract to provide Marine Engineering Services for the NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson. The Thomas Jefferson, whose home port is Norfolk, VA is a hydrographic survey vessel that was built by Halter Marine in 1991. This ship is currently a part of a fleet of NOAA survey vessels. The primary mission is to collect and process the data needed to maintain and update nautical charts along the U.S East Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Our responsibilities include performing the naval architecture and marine engineering services for the design to upgrade the grey water and sewage system to reduce effluent discharge and potable water use. We will provide NOAA with alternatives for upgrading their grey water system by performing numerous feasibility and concept studies. Once an alternative is chosen, our team will prepare a detailed specification and develop design drawings of the new system.
