Bisso Marine Adds New Lay Barge

Monday, May 11, 2009

Bisso Marine, provider of energy and maritime support services, has expanded its growing fleet by purchasing a third pipelay barge. The former G/P 37 was purchased from Global Industries and will be renamed the L/B Warrior Chief.

“The L/B Warrior Chief adds depth and capacity to our experienced fleet, allowing us to provide an even greater level of quality and service,” said W.A. “Beau” Bisso IV, president and chief executive officer of the company. The 188 by 60 by 14-foot L/B Warrior Chief can accommodate 65 people and features a 40 ft diameter helideck. The multi-purpose pipelay platform also will serve as a dive support platform and saturation diving platform. Built in 1981, the L/B Warrior Chief is classified ABS A-1 and has a Coast Guard COI. The vessel is a conventional S-lay barge with four work stations and a 40-kip tensioner. It is outfitted with a 525-psi Patterson jet pumping system and an eight-point mooring system. It is configured to lay up to a 20-inch single pipeline.
