The project team will strive to achieve a 50% reduction in total costs associated with the UHP Water Blasting Process through industrial engineering methods, ergonomic analysis, and environmental engineering efforts.

·18 shipyards responded to survey (374 surveys mailed) ·38% of responses indicated that they use UHP Waterblasting for surface preparation ·The respondents indicated that most UHPWJ is performed inhouse, rather than sub-contracted.

·Average production rate reported for manual blasting to bare metal was less than 50 sq ft per man-hour.

·Average production rate reported for closed cycle UHPWJ to bare metal was 200 – 300 sq ft per man-hour.

Will continue efforts in root cause analysis.

Project Status was presented to the NSRP Surface Coatings Panel (SP-3) and the Environmental Panel (SP-1).

The SP-3 planned their fall meeting at Todd Shipyard in October, where a water blasting demonstration will be held with select vendors.

The project status was presented at Ship Production Process Panel Meeting on 8/23/00 in Williamsburg, VA.

    Hi Nova Contractor-
    Glad to hear from you. I just finished giving talks in Corpus Christi at NACE Central Area Conference, and Ketchikan Alaska to Ship Painting and Coating (SPC) for the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP).

    There exists only one boss. The consumer. And that he can fire everybody inside the company from your chairman on down, by just spending his money elsewhere.
    Try, try, try, and make on trying will be the rule that must definitely be followed to become a professional in anything.
