USA: Harvey Gulf BOD Approves Construction of LNG-Fueled Offshore Supply Vessels
Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Chairman & CEO Shane J. Guidry stated that this is another example of Harvey Gulf’s commitment to meet its clients future needs. Mr. Guidry said that a contract will be awarded to a US shipyard on or before August 28, 2011.
The SV310DF vessels, designed by STX Marine Inc., will be dual-fuel with LNG capacity for seven days with three (3) engines at full RPM. In addition, the vessels will carry 5520 tons of deadweight at load line and have a transit speed of 13 knots. Mr. Guidry stated that, with the stringent Governmental demands for both reduced emissions and clean burning energy use, Harvey Gulf has decided to make the capital investment of 100 Million Dollars for two vessels.
STX Marine Inc., with offices located in Vancouver, British Columbia and Houston, Texas, is a consulting naval architecture and marine engineering company established in 1983 and is the leading designer of offshore support vessels for the North American and International markets.
