Trinity Wins $80M Contract To Build RoRo For Alaska

The state of Alaska has awarded Halter Marine, Inc. of the Trinity Marine Group, a contract to design and build the first oceangoing passenger ship to be built in the U.S. since 1952. The cost of the vessel including all options will be more than $80 million. The 380-ft. (115.8 m) ship, with a beam of 85-ft. {25.9 m), will carry 750 day cruise passengers on southeast Alaska routes, and to Bellingham and Prince Rupert, and 500 overnight cruise passengers on open ocean routes such as the Gulf of Alaska crossing. The new ferry will feature a RoRo design capable of carrying more than 120 vehicles. It will be equipped with a vehicle elevator, side doors, and stern ramp, and is designed to operate at existing state facilities. The ferry is being jointly funded by the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) and the Federal Highway Administration.

Halter Marine and Equitable Shipyards recently teamed in the construction of a 101-ft. (30.7 m) lightweight steel and aluminum security boat, Fraih Al-Fraih, for the Arabian Gulf Mechanical Services & Contracting Co., Ltd., of Kuwait. The vessel will provide security services for offshore rigs and platforms of the Arabian Oil Co., of Khafji, Saudi Arabia. Fraih Al-Fraih is powered by two Detroit Diesel 16V92TA DDEC engines capable of 1100 hp each, but governed to 900 hp for longer life. Electrical power is provided by two Kato 40 kW generators driven by two Detroit Diesel 4.362 diesels. For more information on Trinity Marine Circle 198 on Reader Service Card
