Elliott Bay Design Group's (EBDG) New Orleans office partnered with Gulf Island Marine Fabricators, LLC. on the class design and production engineering for the EB-210CC OSV (Offshore Support Vessel).

The scope of this new design project included detail design, structural, mechanical, piping and outfitting design as well as 3-D assembly drawings of the vessel structure utilizing ShipConstructor software. In addition, EBDG is the primary point of contact for all regulatory body requests for information.

The EB-210CC features a unique tank farm specific to the vessel's mission, which is confidential. "This is not a regular OSV design," explained EBDG Gulf General Manager, Keith Keller. "It would be considered a Specialty Vessel, and the design was developed from concept to production here in the Gulf Coast office."

EBDG is known for its long-standing expertise with production support and lofting systems modeling. The firm's experience with all stages of the vessel design, construction support and regulatory liaison processes made it uniquely qualified to support Gulf Island Marine Fabricators, LLC on the OSV project.

Since the reopening of its Gulf Coast Office in 2012, EBDG has garnered much attention for its exemplary OSV work on the Gulf Coast, attracting a steady flow of clients and projects both nationally and abroad, most recently in Mexico and Trinidad.
