Moss Point Marine Completes Three-Vessel Order For Gulf Fleet Marine
Three new tug/supply vessels were delivered recently to Gulf Fleet Marine Corp. of New Or- leans by Moss Point Marine, Inc., of Escatawpa, Miss.
Gulf Fleet 56 and her sister vessels 57 and 58 are 186 feet long and have 40-foot beams and 11-foot depths. Delivery of the new vessels by Moss Point Marine brings to 36 the number of Gulf Fleet Marine towing/supply boats operating on a worldwide basis, said a Gulf Fleet spokesman.
All three vessels are currently operating off the coast of Chile and will be operating in international waters in the long term, the spokesman added.
Power for each of the three vessels comes from two EMD-16- 645-C main engines linked to Reintjes reduction gears on a 3:1 ratio. Engine controls on the vessels are by Wabco. Shipboard power is provided by a pair of Delco 99-kw generators with generator control panels by Continental.
For added maneuverability, each boat is also equipped with a 300-hp Harbormaster bowthruster supplied by Murray & Tregurtha.
Avondale electroplated 93/71 propellers turn on 8-inch shafts.
Capacities include: 11,200 gallons of potable water, 66,000 gallons of fuel oil, 1,250 barrels liquid mud storage, and 6,000 cubic feet of bulk mud storage.
On-deck cargo equipment includes a Gearmatic Deck Tugger winch and a towing winch by Intercontinental.
Other equipment includes Gorman Rupp bilge, fuel, and fire pumps; three Carlisle & Finch searchlights; Pauluhn and Hubble running and navigation lights; Zodiac lifesaving gear; and a fire monitor on the pilothouse.
Electronics aboard the vessels include Furuno FR 1101 radar, Micrologic ML-220 Loran, Motorola VHF radio, and Hull Electronics SSB system.
A complete and modern galley with separate walk-in freezers and refrigerators, and staterooms capable of accommodating a crew of 18, highlight the living quarters.
Each vessel is both ABS and USCG certified.
