HARVEY DEEP-SEA

Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. announced the delivery of the M/V HARVEY DEEP-SEA, the fourth of its Tiger Shark Class Offshore Support Vessels constructed for Harvey Gulf International Marine, LLC of New Orleans, LA.

 

The HARVEY DEEP-SEA was delivered July 19, 2013.  The vessel was launched at Eastern’s Allanton Facility in mid-December of last year.  The HARVEY DEEP-SEA is Eastern’s second Multi-Purpose Light Construction Vessel (LCV) for Harvey Gulf.  Eastern Shipbuilding Group has now constructed 11 vessels for Harvey Gulf since 2002.

 
Last month Harvey Gulf announced the contract signing for its 12th, 13th and 14th vessels to be constructed by Eastern Shipbuilding, the M/V HARVEY SUB-SEA, HARVEY BLUE-SEA and HARVEY INTERVENTION.  This new STX Marine IMR-340H Inspection, Maintenance and Repair Vessel design measures 327'x 73'x 29'-3" and features a 250MT AHC Sub-Sea Crane.  Additionally, the HARVEY INTERVENTION will feature a 250MT modular handling tower with top drive capabilities.

The HARVEY DEEP SEA is an ABS A1, AMS, ACCU, Circle E, ENVIRO+, Green Passport (GP), NBLES, CRC, HELIDK, Offshore Support Vessel and certified under SOLAS/IMO.  ABS class also includes the ABS DPS-2 and Firefighting FFV-2 notations. It is AC Diesel-Electric powered with twin Schottel Z-drives and three Schottel STT4 bow thrusters and its dimensions are 302’ X 64’ X 24’-6”.  This Multi-Purpose Construction Vessel (LCV), the HARVEY DEEP-SEA, is equipped with an active heave-compensated, National Oilwell Varco 165-ton knuckle boom Sub-Sea Crane capable of lifting/setting at depths up to 10,000 ft.  The HARVEY DEEP-SEA is now scheduled to sail to New Orleans, Louisiana for final installation of its Sub-Sea Crane. This vessel will fill a niche in a very selective market, covered in the past by mostly foreign flag construction vessels.
