Increased Capabilities for Larger Rigs and Boats

Bollinger’s repair and conversion shipyard at Port Fourchon on the Gulf of Mexico, can now accommodate rigs, ships and boats with drafts to 27 feet. This follows the completion of dredging from the sea buoys in the Gulf to Bollinger’s Fourchon 350 foot slip, which has also been deepened.

Walter Berry, executive VP and Chief Operating Officer of Bollinger said, “The deepened waterway and slip permit us to offer services to larger jack-up and matted rigs as well as bigger ships and boats. We also have additional shore power providing electrical power for vessels’ hotel loads as well as additional cherry pickers and forklifts that can lift from 20 to 55 tons.” Berry added that Fourchon’s close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico decreases mobilization and downtime and the facility is supported by other nearby Bollinger shipyards whose machine shops, panel lines, pipe prefabrication, propeller, carpentryand electrical shops provide rapid response without having to wait for subcontractors.
