Curtis Bay Land-Based Ship-Handling Facility

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) proposed the development of a $22 million land-based ship handling facility at its Curtis Bay Yard in Baltimore. STV provided a conceptual design for this land-based ship-handling facility for lifting vessels out of the water and transporting them to onshore workstations for repair. Major components included two 334-foot-long piers, a 270-foot-long vessel lift platform, a marginal wharf and onshore paved workstations. Because environmental impact was a concern, STV also developed mitigation strategies to address air and water quality issues.
