Champion Specialty Services said of its work with Pond & Company: “We always enjoy working on projects with Pond & Company and maintaining the highest standard of safety.”

Dawson-Pond JV was contracted by NAVFAC EXWC to perform tank cleaning, inspections and subsequent repairs on Tank 337 at NAS Patuxent River, Lexington Park, Maryland.

Constructed in 1961, Tank 337 is 59 years old and has exhibited a significant amount of water and overall corrosion damage to both the interior and exterior surfaces. Pond’s team started the tank cleaning, API 653 inspection and coating assessment in November 2018.

Pond then mobilised to the field in February 2020 with the overarching goal of safely completing all repairs in accordance with the design, current standards and project requirements to successfully return the tank into service ahead of schedule.

Champion added: “During the final walk-through, the base safety complemented the team and commented the project was completed with no NOI’s, they said ‘not even a band aid used.’”
