Danos & Curole Christen Jackup Barge Alyce Danos

Christening ceremonies were held recently for the Alyce Danos, a class 130 jackup barge that will service the entire Gulf of Mexico coast.

The Alyce Danos represents a $1.7-million investment by Danos & Curole, marine contractors of Larose, La., and brings to their fleet state-of-the-art capabilities and features that are of particular interest to oil companies throughout the entire Danos & Curole service area.

Featuring a closed loop hydraulic system, the very latest of its kind, the barge is capable of working in depths of up to 90 feet.

Overall length of the self-elevating vessel is 94 feet, with a beam of 63 feet and a draft design of 6 feet 6 inches. Potable water storage capacity is 9,000 gallons and fuel storage capacity is 4,000 gallons.

Propelled by two 12V-71-N Detroit Diesel engines, the Alyce Danos is capable of carrying 150,000 pounds of deck cargo. The barge is equipped with two hydraulic cranes offering 40-ton and 10-ton capacities with 70-foot and 50-foot boom lengths, respectively.

Special conveniences and comforts are built into the galley and relaxation and recreation areas for the crew members.

The Alyce Danos will now join the transportation services division of Danos & Curole which consists of deck barges, water barges and other jackup barges.

Founded in 1945, Danos & Curole is a full-service contractor, capable of serving the oil and marine industries with a variety of personnel, equipment and special fabrication and sandblasting s e r v i c es.
