Rigdon First and Ten Chartered

Monday, August 13, 2007
Rigdon Marine Corporation has taken delivery of the First and Ten, the company’s first of ten diesel electric Rigdon 4000 Class platform support vessels (PVS). The First and Ten immediately assumed a term contract with a major international oil company operating in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The First and Ten is American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Classed Dynamic Positioning-2 (DP-2), with a diesel-electric propulsion system that provides superior fuel efficiency and performance redundancy. The Rigdon 4000 PSVs can transport up to 4,000 barrels of liquid mud in an independent and fully segregated, self cleaning oval tank system and have the ability to deliver 100% of their mud cargo to an offshore rig while greatly reducing the client’s expense of tank cleaning. The First and Ten is a 190 x 46 x 18-ft. PSV featuring two Azimuthing Z-Drives and a fixed L-Drive aft and two large tunnel thrusters forward, all of which translates into a faster, more maneuverable, more stable and overall safer vessel than traditional medium size vessels. The First and Ten and its sister PSVs will be capable of serving the widest array of applications in all water depths.
