    Bender wins Pemex contract

    Yard News // December 10, 2004
    Bender Shipbuilding & Repair Company in Mobile in the US has announced a contract with Pemex, the national oil company of Mexico, for the repair, refurbishment and dry docking of Pemex's semi-submersible accommodation/maintenance vessel, the PSS Chemul.

    The 13,000 ton Chemul was recently dry-docked in Mobile on the Mobile Heavy Lifter, a submersible heavy lift barge chartered in by Bender for the docking of the semi.

    The semi was then towed to the work site at Bender's Yard 9, located on the east side of the Mobile River.

    The job is expected to take eight months to accomplish and will employ 275 direct Bender employees at its peak and another 75 subcontract personnel.
