HOUSTON, TX-- ZPMC-OTL Marine Contractor Ltd. (ZOMC) is pleased to announce the successful transportation of the Ex-Machinist (AFDB-8), an 883ft x 174ft drydock on board M/V Zhen Hua 28. Upon signing of the contract, ZOMC's engineering team shifted into overdrive to ensure that the integrity of the cargo and heavy transport vessel would be suitable for the motions for the route from Guam to Shanghai.
