Bisso Marine Launches Three Vessels

Friday, July 17, 2009
The M/V Yellowfin

Bisso Marine, a provider of energy and maritime support services, successfully launched three vessels in two recent projects.

Using the D/B Cappy Bisso, a Bisso Marine crew of six launched the M/V Yellowfin and the M/V Bluefin in Lockport, La. The two ocean-going tugs each weighs 520 tons.

The operation was particularly challenging because the 700-ton Cappy Bisso had to be towed through Bayou Lafourche, which can be as shallow as 6 feet in some areas.

In the second launch project, Bisso Marine used the D/B Lili Bisso to launch the new push boat Coon Wise in St. Rose, La.

The six-man crew spent about a day launching the 155-ton push boat, which was situated about 80 feet from the edge of the Mississippi River.
