    Bollinger delivers supply/utility vessel for Seacor

    Vessel & ROV News // November 2, 2001
    Bollinger Shipyards in the US has delivered the Seacor Eagle, the first of two 145.5ft supply/utility vessels for Seacor Marine. A nearly identical sister ship, Seacor Hawk is scheduled for delivery in mid November 2001.

    Walter Berry, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Bollinger said, "Seacor Eagle is typical of the ability of our 145ft supply/utility boat to meet the needs of a variety of operators of large, medium and small fleets. The fact that itmeets and exceeds new regulatory requirements and is full ABS (A+, AMS) 100 gross tons (US Reg) and less than 500 gross tons (ITC registered tonnage) makes this design more attractive and profitable for any operator."

    Seacor Eagle is 145.5ft in length, with a 36ft beam. Maximum draft is 9ft 10 inches.

    It is powered by two Cummins KTA-38MO diesel engines developing a total of 1,500 BHP at 1600 RPM. They drive two Bollinger 72-inch by 57-inch stainless steel propellers through Twin Disc MG5301 reverse/reduction gears. Steering is provided by a Jastram steering system and anchors are handled by a Coastal Marine Equipment system.

    Two 99KW Cummins generators driven by two Cummins 6CTA8.3G diesels produce electrical power via Power Panels, Inc., switchgear with temporary paralleling capabilities. Two Quincy F-325-L-2 air compressors start the engines. A Schottel STT110 bow thrusterdriven by a Cummins N-14 engine provides additional manoeuvrability and a Stang fire monitoring system with a 2500GPM capacity is mounted atop the pilothouse to fight fires.

    Seacor Eagle has 2,800 square feet of aft deck space with a maximum deck load of 390 tons. It has four mud tanks with a total capacity of 50,000 gallons of liquid drilling muds. Other capacities are over 60,000 gallons of fuel: 560 gallons of oil, and over 10,000 gallons of fresh water.
