RUSH Marine celebrates the arrival of Mardi Gras cruise ship to Port Canaveral
RUSH Marine team members in front of the Carnival Mardi Gras in Port Canaveral on June 4, 2021.
In 2018, RUSH Marine was unanimously awarded the $38.6 Million marine works package for the new Cruise Terminal 3 project by the Canaveral Port Authority. As the largest construction project to date at Port Canaveral, the extensive marine work performed by RUSH Marine included the removal of 11,000,000 pounds of the existing pier, dredging and disposal of 60,000 cubic yards of existing material to a designated offshore reef site, and installation over 14,860,000 pounds of structural steel components to include the combi wall, A-Frame tie back system, and dolphin structures.

After a delay caused by the COVID-19 global health crisis, the Carnival Mardi Gras ship arrived at Port Canaveral on June 4, 2021. Watching the Mardi Gras ship finally dock at CT-3 in Port Canaveral brought about feelings of gratification and fulfillment to the RUSH Marine team, who worked tirelessly on this project through unprecedented times.
