Narrated by distinguished journalist Norman Robinson, Storm Challenge tells the story of Versabar, a heavy-lift specialist company located in Belle Chasse, Louisiana.
Versabar employees evacuated to many different locations across the country for Hurricane Katrina and then quickly tried to regroup at their newly acquired facility in northwest Houston. Storm Challenges features some of those personal stories.
The documentary explores the last 10 years of the company after Katrina roared ashore in Plaquemines Parish and dealt the company a huge challenge: help cleanup the storm debris left at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and the inland waterways around New Orleans.
Over the next decade, the company built two Lift Vessels: the Bottom Feeder and the larger VB10000. These lift platforms made the rounds in the years after the storm retrieving sunken topsides and structures from the Gulf of Mexico.
Storm Challenge takes you offshore to explain the massive industry cleanup of the Gulf with never before seen footage of offshore lifts.
Finally, the story closes with the homecoming stories of several Versabar employees who returned to their roots in South Louisiana.
Available for acquisition immediately.
