Eastern Shipbuilding announced that on, Wednesday July 16, 2014, Harvey Gulf International Marine, Inc. (HGIM) and Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. (ESG) entered into a contract to construct a new Robert Allan, LTD. (RAL) RAmpage 6400 Multipurpose Field Support Vessel (MPFSV) at Eastern’s Panama City, Florida facilities.

The RAL design is designated RAmpage 6400 and Eastern Hull No. 234; the vessel will begin a 10-year charter when delivered in April, 2016. Harvey Gulf is Eastern’s long term offshore vessel client; now contracting its 14th offshore vessel over the past 13 years. This contract continues Eastern’s long term commitment and history of being one of the most successful U.S. shipbuilders in the offshore marine shipbuilding industry. Eastern will continue to provide better services and grow its facilities along with its strong workforce of men and women who are always eager for the next new construction, conversion or repair challenge.

Robert Allan, LTD (RAL) of Vancouver, B.C. will be providing this detailed MPFSV Hybrid design and engineering providing better diesel fuel efficiencies than typical vessels of the same class during various offshore operating conditions.
