Wendle W. Huddleston, president and chief executive officer of Hudson Shipbuilders, Inc.

(HUDSHIP), recently announced that a contract has been signed for the construction of two 176- foot offshore supply vessels for an unnamed client.

The two vessels will be delivered from the Pascagoula, Miss., yard during the second quarter of 1982 and the third quarter of 1982.

The vessels will measure 176 feet by 40 feet by 14 feet 6 inches and will be powered by twin Detroit Diesel 16V149 engines driving through Twin Disc Model MG 540 reverse/reduction gears rated at 6:1 ratio. Auxiliary power will be provided by twin 75-kw Delco E-7344 gensets powered by Detroit Diesel 6-71N engines. Maneuverability will be enhanced by a Schottel S152L 300-hp bowthruster driven by a GM 8V-71 engine.

Tank capacities have been designed to accommodate 61,000 gallons of fuel oil, 20,000 gallons of potable water, and 233,000 gallons of ballast water.

The crew accommodations are designed to provide quarters for 19 people in six staterooms.
