Halter To Build Two Supply Vessels For Jackson Marine

Halter Marine, Inc., New Orleans, La., and Jackson Marine Corp., Aransas Pass, Texas, have signed a contract for the construction of two 180-foot supply boats. The new vessels will be the 48th and 49th to be built by Halter for Jackson.

The two companies began their association in 1967 with the construction and delivery of the 100- foot tug Captain Jac. Since then Halter has built 33 tugs, 13 supply boats, and one crewboat for the Texas-based vessel operator.

The new vessels will each be 180 feet long, with a 40-foot beam, and 14-foot depth. Each will be powered by two Caterpillar D-399 engines d e v e l o p i ng 1,125 hp each at 1,225 rpm.

Each will be equipped to carry 4,000 cubic feet of bulk mud and 1,660 barrels of liquid mud. In addition, both will be able to fight off-ship fires and both will be equipped with a foam and chemical dispersant system. Delivery is scheduled for the summer of 1982.

The supply boats will be built at Halter's Calumet, La., division, one of a group of shipyards owned and operated by Halter in the Southeastern U.S.
