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

Building on a philosophy that starts at the top, Bollinger Shipyards say they strive for “0” 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, Executive Vice President of Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. said, “Our Fourchon personnel have withstood the test of time, as our shipyard in Port Fourchon has grown over the past twelve years.  With the sustained effort of our employees, Bollinger continues to be one of the safest shipyards in America.”

In May, 2013 Bollinger was awarded the 2012 “Award for Excellence in Safety” by the Shipbuilders Council of America for the eighth consecutive year.  The Shipbuilders Council represents over 120 shipyards located throughout the United States.

The Bollinger Fourchon shipyard services the nation’s busiest oil and gas support terminals in the United States. The facility specializes in all aspects of shipyard requirements, including top side and dry-docking needs, repairs/conversions, fabrication and project support for a very diverse fleet of vessels ranging from drilling rigs to supply boats, to multi-purpose support vessels of all sizes.
