Triple Play delivered and under contractVessel & ROV News // November 28, 2007
Billy Guice, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of Rigdon Marine Corporation, has announced that Bollinger Shipyards in Lockport, Louisiana recently delivered Triple Play, third in a 10-vessel series of PSVs.
The Rigdon 4000 Class PSV was immediately deployed on a term contract with a major oil company in the Gulf of Mexico.
“Our Rigdon 4000 Class PSVs are very well received,” said Guice. “These modern vessels are proving very versatile, exhibiting excellent sea-keeping characteristics and are delivering significant fuel savings to their charterers, thanks in large part to the diesel-electric propulsion philosophy. Bollinger Shipyards is to be commended for its high-quality standards and skilled workmanship.”
Triple Play is a 190ft x 46ft x 18ft, diesel-electric, DP 2 PSV, which has a capacity of 4,000 barrels of liquid mud in an oval, self-cleaning, segregated tank system.
The PSV also has three Z-Drives and two large forward tunnel thrusters.
Rigdon 4000 Class PSVs are capable of serving a wide array of marine applications in all water depths.
Triple Play joins Double Eagle and First and Ten in the Rigdon fleet. The remaining seven Rigdon 4000 Class PSVs will each be delivered at approximately 40 day intervals during 2007 and through the third quarter of 2008.
