Dry Dock 12 Certification. Newport News, Virginia.
In order to ensure that shipbuilding facilities that dock U.S. Navy vessels are operated and maintained in safe conditions, the Department of Defense requires Facility Certification Report (FCR) documentation according to Standard Practice Safety Certification Program for Drydocking Facilities and Shipbuilding Ways for U.S. Navy Ships. WRA is one of an elite group of consultants qualified to execute the required inspections, to perform the associated calculations, and to orchestrate data gathering, inspection, survey, and special testing efforts indicated by this standard. The multidiscipline team of structural, geotechnical, electrical, mechanical, and civil engineers provide a specialized expertise to regularly review, maintain, and update the FCR documentation for this drydock, well as other drydocks and shipbuilding facilities in the shipyard. The team members also provide engineering analysis and custom repair details to address changing existing conditions and requested modifications.
