Nola Centurion Opens Fabrication Facility In Braithwaite, La.

With contracts totaling more than $2.5 million, Nola Centurion Fabricators, a division of Nola Fleet Management, Inc., recently announced the opening of its Braithwaite, La., fabrication facility.

From their 30-acre site at Mile 80.7 on the Mississippi River, Nola Centurion offers services ranging from sophisticated inspection techniques for repair to engineering and fabrication for commercial and industrial projects, and launching of vessels or offshore rig assemblies up to 250 feet.

One current contract includes the complete refurbishing of 112 barges of a 515-barge fleet operated by Forest Lines, Inc. of New Orleans.

"Even though we're located on the river, we don't want people to think we're limited to marine construction," said Joe Martin, vice-president of operations. "We support a wide range of industries—petrochemical, marine, and commercial construction. We perform maintenance, fabrication and construction projects throughout the river parishes.

Our facilities allow us to transport by rail and truck as well as by the river." Past contracts for the petrochemical industry have included maintenance, fabrication and construction work.
