New Landing Craft

      10/24/2000

Sun State Marine Services, a subsidiary of Hvide Marine, has begun construction on the second in a series of new U.S.-flag cargo ships at its shipyard facility in Green Cove Springs, Florida. The 190-foot "landing craft" type freight vessel is specially designed and ideally suited for conducting trade in areas that have minimal or unimproved shore facilities.

This new vessel will be equipped with a ramped bow for roll-on/roll-off cargo and more than 6,100 square feet of open cargo deck. Powered by two 720 horsepower Caterpillar main diesel engines the vessel will achieve a speed of 12 knots. To assist in maneuvering, the vessels will have a Wesmar 200 HP bow thruster. Ship's power will be supplied by two John Deere generator setsrated at 60 kW each.

Gerhard E. Kurz, president and CEO of HMI, noted, "The landing craft's unique and proven ability to safely utilize beaches or boat ramps provides customers with the right tool for practical and profitable operations in areas that were previously inaccessible."
