Bollinger Delivers Supply Boat to Seacor

Tuesday, August 05, 2003

Bollinger Shipyards Lockport, La., has delivered the Seacor Madison, the first of three 207-ft., 4,750 bhp supply boats to Seacor Marine, Inc., Houston, Tex. It will be followed by two others of Seacor's new President Class offshore support vessels (OSV), Seacor Washington and Seacor Jefferson.

The boats are part of Bollinger's new 220 Class OSVs that are designed to provide more cargo capacities, more versatility, more options and lower operating costs than larger vessels.

Classed by ABS, Seacor Madison measures 207 x 53 x 19 ft. (63 x 16.1 x 5.7 m), has a light draft of 6.5 ft. (1.9 m), and a loaded draft of 16.2 ft. (4.9 m).

Two Caterpillar 3516B diesels developing a total of 4,750 bhp at 1,600 rpm driving two Steerprop SP25 azimuthing propulsors supplied by Karl Senner, Inc, provide propulsion. Two 370 kW generators driven by two Caterpillar 3408 diesels produce electricity. The vessel is also equipped with a 95 kW generator as part of its Safety of Life At Sea (SOLAS) classification. Two 1,000 hp SMI bow thrusters driven by two Caterpillar 3508B diesels aid maneuverability and station keeping. Bow thruster noise is reduced by a Sound Down noise damping system. All of the Caterpillar engines were supplied by Louisiana Machinery, Inc.

The vessel's cargo deck has a clear area of 6,525 sq. ft. capable of carrying 1,380 long tons. Some other capacities are: 169,774 gallons of drill water; 106,129 gallons of ballast water; 155,313 gallons of fuel oil; 2,296 gallons of lube oil; 1,155 gallons of hydraulic oil, and 2,498 gallons of sewage. A partial list of electronics and controls includes: a Simrad DPS-2 vessel control; a Furuno GPS; SteerProp engine controls; two JRC radars; an A3 GMDSS radio system; a Bogen public address system; OFE Globe Offshore internet E-mail; a Standard Horizon VHF and loudhailer, and a JRC speed log.

Other equipment includes a Coastal Marine anchor windlass, a Stang 1,900 GPM fire monitor with a Crane Demming pump driven by a Caterpillar 3508B diesel; six 16-man inflatable life rafts; a SOLAS rigid inflatable boat (RIB) with a 50 HP motor, and a Headhunter 36-person marine sanitation device.

Air-conditioned and heated accommodations are provided for 26 people in 11 cabins, all with private heads. A double bed hospital is also included and the boat's galley can serve 12 persons at a time.
