Rigdon Marine Christens Fast Supply Vessel

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Billy Guice, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Rigdon Marine Corporation (RMC), announced the christening and delivery of the Hammerhead, the first of four proprietary FSV (fast supply vessels) the company is building. Mrs. Shelley Puckett, wife of Mike Puckett, a Vessel Manager for RMC, christened the 181-ft. FSV prior to its deployment in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The Hammerhead is a 181x 34-ft., 7,200-hp, DP-1 FSV, which features a capacity of 1,001 barrels of liquid mud, 664 barrels of rig water, and a cargo deck capacity of 400 metric tons. The state of the art FSV will include a 250 hp drop-down azimuthing bow thruster, and a cargo discharge capacity of 500 gallons per minute (GPM) of liquid mud, 300 GPM of rig water, and 300 GPM of fuel oil.  The Hammerhead was designed primarily in support of the rigorous deepwater environment where long runs, high payloads and challenging sea conditions are the norm.  However, her speed and safety advantages also provide a competitive advantage versus traditional workboats in shallow water applications.  In all operating theatres, the Rigdon 181 class FSV adds tremendous value and versatility for the end user.  
The remaining three Rigdon 181 class FSVs are expected to deliver in 2008 and early 2009.
