Bollinger Shipyards has taken delivery of two drydocks with a total lifting capacity of 12,000 tons. 
 
The announcement was made by Bollinger Chief Operating Officer, Ben Bordelon: “These two docks will position us well in the diverse customer markets that we serve and will further enhance our position in the market with lifting capacity needed by our customers.”
 
Terms and conditions of the purchase were not made available.
 
One of the docks, a 10,500 ton dry-dock will be located at the Bollinger Port Fourchon facility, and measures 320-ft. x 100-ft. between the wing walls. Bollinger now has three commercial drydocks located in Fourchon with a combined lifting capacity of over 22,000 tons.
 
The second dock, a 1,500 ton drydock will be located at the Bollinger Quick Repair (BQR) facility in Harvey, Louisiana, and measures 160-ft x 60-ft between the wing walls. BQR is located off the Mississippi River on the Harvey Canal and provides service to both the inland and offshore marine transportation sector with six drydocks ranging from 900 to 3,400 ton lifting capacity.
 
Bollinger recently announced the development of Bollinger Fourchon North at the Port of Fourchon. Scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2015, the facility will have ample drydock capacity for most all of the vessels operating in the Gulf and out of the port. In addition to the three docks currently in the port for Bollinger, the facility will include a business park with housing, fabrication and machining for subsea equipment, structural components for subsea pipelines and deepwater developments, as well as project and equipment laydown areas. The current Bollinger facility, Bollinger Fourchon South, will remain the rig, topside repair and conversion facility on the main channel in the Port of Fourchon.
