Bollinger Launches Ocean Intervention II

Tuesday, January 11, 2000
Bollinger Shipyards began the new millennium off right with the christening and launching of Ocean Internvention II on New Year's Day. Measuring 254 x 54 x 19 ft. (77.4 x 16.4 x 5.7 m), the 4,000-hp multi-service vessel (MSV) built for Oceaneering International is scheduled for a spring 2000 delivery. Christened by Mary Schmidt, wife of Jack Schmidt, Oceaneering's on-site construction project manager, Ocean Intervention is designed for deepwater installation work. The vessel differs from conventional offshore vessels with its nearly flat bottom and two large bowthrusters. The flat bottom was designed to allow for easier operation of remotely operated vehicles (ROV), and other equipment from the vessel's forward and aft 18 x 18 ft. moonpools. Main elements of the vessel's dynamic positioning system, are its 6.5 ft. bowthrusters, which aid in meeting with the ABS DPS-2 certification. Developing a total of 5,470 EkW from two CAT 3516B and 3508 generators, the diesel-electric SCR driven vessel's propulsion will be provided by two 2,000-hp-DC Aquamaster azimuthing thrusters (z-drives). Two Kamewa bowthrusters will aid maneuverability, while a fully redundant Kongsberg Simrad dynamic positioning system will control all the significant elements that will hold the vessel in position during operating sea conditions.
