Launch of Cape May Light

See More Vessel Transfer and Launch

In 2000 HEGER was hired by Atlantic Marine, Jacksonville (Now BAE Systems Southeast), to assist with the launch of the vessel ‘Cape May Light’. The vessel was to be end launched on their 3,000 ton capacity launch way.

HEGER analyzed launch car wheel loads and poppet car load to verify they were within the capacity of the launch rails, recommend location of launch cars and calculated maximum drafts during launch to verify clearance of mud line.

The vessel was successfully launched in 2000.
