Thursday, October 28, 2010

Trinity Offshore, LLC announced that they have signed a contract to build one 56-ft by 14-ft MKII Very Shallow Multi-System Skimmer (VSMSS) with Clean Gulf Associates of New Orleans, La.  Clean Gulf Associates, one of the largest oil spill response cooperative in North America, will operate the vessel to provide marine service and environmental clean up along the Gulf Coast to its member companies.

The vessels can be quickly fitted with different oil recovery systems depending upon the type of oil to be recovered.

The Skimmer will be built at Trinity Offshore's New Orleans, La. shipyard with delivery planned for early this December.  Trinity Offshore’s owners and key personnel have a long history in building state of the art oil spill recovery vessels dating as far back as 1980’s.  Since the BP oil crisis, Trinity has designed and delivered a total of 22 vessels to assist in the clean-up effort. These include: seven 35-ft Shuttle Work barges, 11 30-ft Marco/Kvichak Rapid Response Skimmers, one 56-ft Very Shallow Multi-System Skimmer, shown in the photo above, and three 249 bbl oil recovery mini-barges.

The Skimmer equipment on the vessel will consist of  two CRUCIAL bow mounted model SB-36/15, 3 foot wide hydraulic driven absorbent belt skimmer systems including deck skids, one CRUCIAL supplied boom reel and one diesel driven CRUCIAL model DHP-29 hydraulic power unit.
