Bollinger Increases Port Fourchon Capabilities

Tuesday, September 04, 2001
Bollinger’s repair and conversion shipyard at Port Fourchon, La., on the Gulf of Mexico, can now accommodate rigs, ships and boats with drafts to 27 ft., now that dredging is complete from the sea buoys in the Gulf to Bollinger’s Fourchon 350-ft. slip, which has also been deepened. “The deepened waterway and slip permit us to offer services to larger jack-up and matted rigs as well as bigger ships and boats. We also have additional shore power providing electrical power for vessels’ hotel loads as well as additional cherry pickers and forklifts that can lift from 20 to 55 tons," said Walter Berry, executive VP and COO. Berry added that Fourchon’s close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico decreases mobilization and downtime and the facility is supported by other nearby Bollinger shipyards whose machine shops, panel lines, pipe refabrication and propeller, carpentry and electrical shops provide rapid response without having to wait for subcontractors.
