The Bollinger Fourchon shipyard services the nation’s busiest oil and gas support terminals in the United States.

Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. announced that their Bollinger Fourchon, L.L.C. facility has worked 13 years without a lost time accident.

Building on a philosophy that starts at the top, Bollinger Shipyards strives for zero accidents. Workforce, contractors, and customer safety is priority and an evident core component of facility operations. Through dedication of top management, a proactive workforce, and comprehensive safety program, Bollinger Shipyards continues to achieve high safety objectives.

Ben Bordelon, Bollinger’s Chief Operating Officer said, “Our Fourchon personnel have withstood the test of time, as our shipyard in Port Fourchon has grown over the past 13 years. With the sustained effort of our employees, Bollinger continues to be one of the safest shipyards in America. Congratulations to everyone at the Fourchon facility for their efforts in making our safety program successful.”

In April 2014, Bollinger was awarded the 2013 Award for Excellence in Safety by the Shipbuilders Council of America for the ninth consecutive year. The Shipbuilders Council represents over 120 shipyards located throughout the United States.

In May 2014, Bollinger announced the Bollinger Fourchon North expansion, a 50 acre complex strategically located in the middle of the nation’s busiest oil & gas support hub. Bollinger Fourchon North is estimated to be completed in the first quarter of 2015, and has all of the key elements and services for the demanding oil and gas support vessel and service company industry, including a seasoned work force, multiple modern dry-docks, ample lifting capacity with mobile crane units, secure business complex for customers, regulatory agencies and vendors, large fabrication shop, warehouse, secure lay-down area and staging area for projects.
