A major milestone has been reached in the Battleship Texas repair project has been reached with the arrival of the salvaged drydock at the shipyard in Galveston, TX
The journey to secure a drydock for the repair and refurbishment of the Battleship Texas has been a long one. Lack of available docks in the United States forced us to get creative. Ultimately, Valkor found a drydock in the Bahamas that had been wrecked in a hurricane and worked a deal to repair, modify and bring it the the US. Access to the island was complicated by Covid, but all obstacles have been overcome. The drydock has arrived in Galveston and is being prepared for a Fall movement of the Battleship to the yard to kick off work on the Battleship Texas.
