Bollinger To Construct Supply Boat Trio

Monday, January 08, 2001
Bollinger Shipyards has commenced construction of three 145 ft. (44.1 m) supply/utility boats for Bordelon Marine - doubling the number of OSV's for the Lockport-based operator.

The new vessels, all of which will hold the namesake of a Bordelon family member, will be known as Wes Bordelon, Terry Bordelon and Bunny Bordelon.

Scott Theriot, executive vice president New Construction of Bollinger said, "These new 145's are truly all-purpose and continue to meet and exceed industry requirements. We have already delivered 19, eight are under construction and we have options for more."

The 145 footers will each have a beam of 36 ft. (10.9 m) and a maximum draft of 12 ft. (3.6 m) - normal operating draft will be eight ft. (2.4 m) They will be Powered by a pair of Cummins KTA-38MO diesel engines rated at 750-bhp at 1,600 rpm, driving Bollinger four-blade propellers through Twin Disc reverse/reduction gears with a ratio of 4.96:1. Hydraulic steering will be installed at two pilothouse stations and a 272-hp Schottel STT-110 bowthruster will assist steering.

Boasting a package that complies with IMO emission standards, the Cummins engine package features direct drive liquid mud pumps off of the main engines thereby eliminating belt systems. Cummins was also selected to provide electrical power; oil free bilge systems and dirty collection tanks will be present on each vessel.

The OSV's will come equipped with four liquid mud tanks with a total capacity of 49,332 gallons. They will be built to hold 28,675 gallons of fuel, 400 gallons of oil, 250 gallons of hydraulic fluids and 23,776 gallons of potable water. The vessels' 95 x 32 ft. aft decks will be able to transport up to 390 long tons of cargo. Navigation equipment onboard includes Furuno radars; a Furuno GPS unit with plotter; an autopilot; two Furuno VHF radios; Nautex antennas and Motorola cell phones.
