Bollinger Quick Repair, LLC, a Bollinger Shipyards LLC company, has taken delivery of a new 3,400 ton dry-dock.

Built at Bollinger Shipyard’s Amelia, La. facility, the dock is now in service and measures 219’7” X 84’, with a wing wall depth of 15’, and is rated for 3,400 tons, said Bollinger President & CEO, Ben Bordelon.

The dry-dock is named in honor of long-time Bollinger employee Eddie Barnes, Jr., who joined Bollinger Shipyards on June 29, 1972 and during his tenure with the company has held various key production positions such as Dockmaster, Foreman and Superintendent. 

"I want to congratulate Mr. Eddie Barnes, an outstanding Bollinger employee of 47 years," Bordelon said. "We are proud for you to be a part of the Bollinger family."

BQR is located off the Mississippi River on the Harvey Canal and provides service to both the inland and offshore marine transportation markets with five dry-docks ranging from 900 to 3,400 ton capacity.

Bollinger has 10 shipyards located throughout Louisiana with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi River and the Intracoastal Waterway.
