Technology Associates Inc (TAI) in New Orleans has announced that another vessel based on its 'EnviroMax' design was launched early in May 2015.
Thoma-Sea Marine Constructors launched a 6,300 dwt 'EnviroMax 310' at its Lockport shipyard on 28 Apri. The owner of this vessel is a major oil and gas support vessel company.
The EnviroMax 310 vessel is US flagged and will serve worldwide markets. The vessel is being built to the latest ABS rules and has AMS, ACCU, SOLAS, Offshore Support Vessel (SUPPLY-HNLS, FFV-1) HDC HLC (2.7, LM TANKS), MLC-ACCOM, UWILD, ENVIRO, GREEN PASSPORT notations and certified for USCG Subchapter I & L .
EnviroMax OSVs have also been built for Gulfmark Offshore, which operates Regulus and Polaris (EnviroMax 275); Gulf Offshore Logistics, Taylor James (EnviroMax 300) built by Thoma-Sea; and Fugro Americas, a version built for Fugro as a research vessel, which was also recently delivered by Thoma-Sea. Harvey Gulf International Marine is now operating Harvey Condor and Harvey Hawk, both which are EnviroMax TM 300 OSVs.
Captain Paul D Hawkins who operates one of the Technology EnviroMax 275s said: "We can standby on one generator, and transit on one of the four generators saving them (our client) a lot on fuel. Overall the vessel is doing an outstanding job, and the captain and crew are pleased."
All of the above designs are fuel efficient and deadweight optimized, dynamically positioned, high speed diesel-electric vessels, and are derivatives of TAI’s EnviroMax series of designs, which have been licensed by TAI to Thoma-Sea.
