Construction is underway on a $1.9-million class 130 jackup barge for Danos & Curole Marine Contractors of Larose, La., as part of the ongoing process of expansion in their marine department.

Featuring a state-of-the-art closed loop hydraulic system, the vessel, to be christened Eric Danos, will be capable of working in depths of up to 90 feet and has an overall length of 94 feet, a beam of 63 feet and a draft design of 6 feet 6 inches.

Engines on the Eric Danos will be two 12V-71-N Detroit diesels and deck space will allow for 150,000 pounds of topside cargo. As additional support, hydraulic cranes with 40-ton and 10-ton capacities and 70-foot and 50-foot boom lengths, respectively, will be included.

Designed with a variety of services in mind, the Danos & Curole jackup boats have gained special notoriety for their use in pipelaying projects.

The firm is also known in the oil and marine industries as a full service contractor for more than 40 years.
