    Harvey Gulf takes delivery of innovative newbuild

    Vessel & ROV News // May 23, 2003
    Harvey Gulf International in the US has taken delivery of Harvey Provider, a 240ft x 56ft x 18.5ft, DP2 supply vessel.

    The Harvey Provider is the first of six new vessels for the company.

    Having DP2 means that it can transport a full load of cargo into and out of most South Louisiana, Texas and Alabama ports.

    Harvey Provider has a clear deck space of 175ft x 56ft which can carry 2,352 short tons. Below deck, the ship can accommodate 7,000 barrels of liquid mud in 10 tanks; 1,100 barrels of methanol in two tanks; 9,600 cubic feet of dry bulk in six tanks; 5,485 barrels of drill water in 13 tanks; and 290,000 gallons of diesel fuel in the standard fuel tank, or a total of 500,000 gallons of diesel fuel when the liquid mud tanks, which are already piped and certified for fuel service, are used.

    Harvey Provider's propulsion machinery is based on a pair of Caterpillar 3516 diesel engines - supplied through Louisiana Machinery - which provides 4,750hp.

    The ship's manoeuvrability is enhanced by a pair of 925hp bow thrusters and a 540hp stern thruster.

    Harvey Provider was built by Eastern Shipbuilding.
