Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. announced delivery of M/V HOS Red Dawn and the launch and christening of M/V HOS Renaissance, both vesssels for Hornbeck Offshore Services, LLC.

Attending from Hornbeck was William “Bill” Krewsky, Director of Engineering and Project Management. He spoke about the long term commitment and partnership of both companies, the quality of workmanship, noting that “HOS Red Dawn has been delivered, several days early and on budget”.

In addition, ten senior members and vessel officers of the Hornbeck Team witnessed the launch of the third of twelve HOSMAX Offshore Supply Vessels and MPSV’s under contract with Eastern.  Also attending the launch was Dan Janki, President and CEO of GE Energy Management.

Hornbeck’s first vessel, the HOS Red Dawn (H201), now delivered, was launched on February 15, 2013. The HOS Red Rock (H202) launched on April 19, 2013 and is currently at Eastern completing final outfitting, regulatory and DP-2 trials.  Delivery of the HOS Red Rock is scheduled for September 2013.

The HOS Renaissance (H203) is the third of four vessels designated as the HOSMAX 300 series by Hornbeck Offshore. These vessels are capable of a maximum speed of 14 knots with a cruising speed of 12 knots.  Captain Terry Hatton, who will be taking the vessel to sea as master once she delivers later this year, along with his wife Karen, had the honors of christening the vessel.

The remaining six Offshore Supply Vessels under contract are 302’x64’x26’ designated HOSMAX 310 Offshore Support Vessels. The total below-deck capacities of the HOSMAX 310 include 285,649 gals of diesel fuel, 609,227 gals of drill/ballast water, 21,509 barrels of liquid mud, 14,347 cubic foot of dry-bulk mud, 2,212 barrels of methanol and 62,538 gals of potable water.

Hornbeck Offshore currently owns a fleet of 77 vessels with the addition of the HOS Red Dawn primarily serving the energy industry and has 23 additional high-spec Upstream vessels planned or under construction for delivery through 2016.
