Next Bordelon newbuild due in February 2015Vessel & ROV News // October 31, 2014
Bordelon Marine in the US says the next vessel in the Stingray 260 DP2 series of vessels that it is building for its own use, Shelia Bordelon, is due to be delivered in February 2015.
The vessel will be fitted out as what Bordelon Marine describes as “ultra-light intervention vessel” and will have a 50 tonne active heave-compensated (AHC) crane from National Oilwell Varco, a mezzanine launch and recovery deck designed to support two work-class ROVs, 6,000ft2 of clear deck and accommodation for 56.
The third vessel in the series, Brandon Bordelon, also to be configured as an ultra-light intervention vessel, will have a 60 tonne AHC SMST crane, LARS deck, and the same deck area and accommodation as Sheila Bordelon.
The company said it plans to continue building organically, approximately one vessel per year, and is in the planning stages for the vessels that will be delivered in 2016 and 2017.
