The M/V Blue Marlin will be anchoring in Port Angeles Harbor beginning Friday, April 17th to offload the offshore drilling rig Polar Pioneer. The anchorages in Port Angeles harbor are federally designated and regulated by the US Coast Guard. After the M/V Blue Marlin departure, the Polar Pioneer will remain here while equipment is installed that had to be removed for transport. The work is being done in Port Angeles due to the added margin of safety afforded by the protected harbor and will take place over approximately a two week timeframe.
The Port of Port Angeles’ involvement in this operation is limited to working with local service and supply vendors that customarily use the Port’s public facilities. The Port will provide moorage for local supply vessels in connection with the operation.
