New Supply Vessel

Bollinger Shipyards (Lockport, USA) has delivered the 145-foot supply/utility boat ‘Wes Bordelon’ to as the first of three nearly identical supply/utility vessels under construction for Bordelon, the Lockport-based vessel operator. The vessel is 145 feet long with a 36-foot beam and maximum draft of 11.5 feet. Normal operating draft is eight feet. Its large 95 foot by 32-foot aft deck is able to carry up to 390 long tonsof cargo.

Wes Bordelon is powered by two Cummins KTA-38MO diesel engines rated @750BHP at 1600 RPM. They drive Bollinger 72 inch by 57 inch, four-blade, stainless steel propellers through Twin Disc MG5301 reverse/reduction gears with a ratio of 4.96:1. Hydraulic steering is installed at two pilothouse stations and a 272 HP Schottel, STT-110 bow thruster aids steering. The Cummins engines feature a "package" that meets new IMO emission standards with direct driveliquid mud pumps off of the main engines thereby eliminating belt systems. The boat's electrical power is provided by two Cummins 6CTA8.36 diesels driving two Cummins 99 KW generators.

Wes Bordelon is equipped with 4 liquid mud tanks with a total capacity of 49,332 gallons. It can carry 28,675 gallons of fuel, 400 gallons of oil, 250 gallons of hydraulic fluids and 13,776 gallons of potable water.
