Coast Guard seeks information to support Waterways Commerce Cutter Program


The Coast Guard released a request for information Feb. 14 to gather information about the state of the market and current industrial capabilities to support pile-driving systems for the Waterways Commerce Cutter (WCC) Program. The deadline to submit responses is March 7 at 12 p.m. EST.

The WCC Program is recapitalizing the Coast Guard’s inventory of inland cutters, which are responsible for maintaining more than 28,200 marine aids throughout 12,000 miles of inland waterways. The fleet consists of nine classes and subclasses. Vital operations for the WCC mission set consist of river buoy tending, pile driving and extraction, tower construction and large buoy operations.
