Seacor’s Eagle has Landed

Tuesday, November 13, 2001
Bollinger Shipyards, Inc., Lockport, La., delivered Seacor Eagle, the first of two 145.5 x 36 x 9.8-ft. supply/utility vessels for Seacor Marine, Inc., Houston, Tex. Seacor Hawk, a nearly identical sister ship, is scheduled for delivery in mid November 2001. "Seacor Eagle is typical of the flexibility and versatility of our 145 ft. supply/utility boat to meet the needs of a variety of operators of large, medium and small fleets," said Walter Berry, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Bollinger. "The fact that it meets and exceeds new regulatory requirements and is full ABS (A+, AMS) 100 gross tons (U.S. Reg.) and less than 500 gross tons (ITC registered tonnage) makes this design more attractive and profitable for any operator." Powered by two Cummins KTA-38MO diesel engines that develop a total of 1,500 bhp at 1,600 rpm, the engines drive a pair of Bollinger 72- by 57-in. stainless steel propellers through Twin Disc MG5301 reverse/reduction gears. Steering is provided by a Jastram steering system and anchors are handled by a Coastal Marine Equipment system. Two 99KW Cummins generators driven by two Cummins 6CTA8.3G diesels produce electrical power via Power Panels, Inc., switchgear with temporary paralleling capabilities. Two Quincy F-325-L-2 air compressors start the engines. A Schottel STT110 bowthruster driven by a Cummins N-14 engine provides additional maneuverability and a Stang fire monitoring system with a 2,500 gpm capacity is mounted atop the pilot house to fight fires. Seacor Eagle offers its owner 2,800 sq. ft. of aft deck space with a maximum deck load of 390 tons. It has four mud tanks with a total capacity of 50,000 gallons of liquid drilling muds. Other capacities are over 60,000 gallons of fuel: 560 gallons of oil, and over 10,000 gallons of fresh water. Nav/Com equipment includes two JRC 48 mile radars; a Furuno GP31 GPS; a Comnav 1001 autopilot; a Furuno HF150W radio; two Standard Horizon Intrepid VHF radios with two remotes, and a Raytheon 430 Loudhailer with horns in key locations that double as the boat's public address system.
