Friday, July 26, 2002
Specialty Marine, a woman-owned corporation, has recently christened DSV Jean-Elaine. With a length of 180 ft., this fully equipped dive support vessel joined the Gulf fleet in December 2001. Classed by ABS, it is fitted with a 25-ton telescoping Pettebone crane and a 4-point mooring system capable of operating at depths up to 1,000 feet. With accommodations for 36 persons, the Jean-Elaine is equipped to make a substantial contribution to the Gulf’s oil exploration resources. Currently working for BP Amoco in the Eugene Island Area, she is based in Houma, La., and is supplied and equipped for immediate response.
