Project Description

OSU Ship Operations dock, located at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport Oregon, and operated by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS), was constructed in the early 1960’s and has served long past its expected life. A newer part of the dock was built in the 1990’s to extend the dock’s size and capabilities. This project makes necessary improvements required to operate the new regional class research vessel, the RV Taani, due to arrive in Newport in 2023, as well as ships that OSU may operate in the future.
