Louisiana Company Orders OSV

Tuesday, January 20, 2004
L&M Bo-Truc Rental of Golden Meadow Louisiana have placed an order with Bollinger Shipyards for two off-shore supply vessels. In the half century since Minor Cheramie founded the company it has grown to be one of the largest privately held supply boat companies with 16 vessels from 166 to 235 feet operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

Now operated by the second generation of the Cheramie family, the firm’s capabilities will be significantly enhanced by the new vessels. At 191 feet in length with a 46-foot beam the vessels will have a molded depth of 15 feet. Each vessel will have a pair of Cummins KTA50 main engines rated for 1600 HP continuous duty at 1800 RPM. Gears will turn an 84x67-inch propeller through a Twin Disc MG 56 Series 6.4:1. Each boat’s Cummins power package includes two 6CTA8 3G 165Kw generator sets, one KTA19, 640 HP bow thruster engine, two N14, 440 HP mud pumps and a single 6BT, 76 Kw emergency generator set.

The first engines will deliver to the shipyard in February 2004. The first OSVs, to be named Cheramie Botruc#38, is scheduled for delivery to the owners in August of 2004 with the second, Cheramie Botruc#39, to follow in two months. The DP1 and SOLAS certified vessels will be assigned to the supply and service of drilling rigs across the Gulf of Mexico.
