Leevac Awarded Conversion Contracts —Literature Available

Leevac Shipyards, Inc., Jennings, La., was recently awarded two separate conversion contracts.

The first contract calls for the design, fabrication and installation of a new stern section for a 110-foot landing craft for U.S. naval operations in the South Atlantic Ocean.

The second contract was awarded to both Leevac Shipyards and Fredeman Shipyard, Inc., Sulphur, La., for the conversion of the supply vessel Northern Surveyor to a seismic exploration vessel for the Bureau of Marine Geological Survey of the People's Republic of China.

The Geophysical Service Inc. is the prime contractor and will furnish all seismic equipment. The work is expected to be completed at the end of March 1989.

The new stern section of the naval landing craft will consist of a steel hull stern containing the engine room and steering compartment.

Two levels above the main deck will consist of a steel poop deck and aluminum pilothouse.

Leevac Shipyards is charged with designing the new stern section incorporating the latest marine equipment and systems, improved use of the deck area for crew quarters and a more spacious pilothouse with im- proved visibility. This is to be done without negatively affecting the stability, draft or load carrying capabilities of the vessel.

Located on the Mermentau River, Leevac Shipyards has been in the business of building, converting and repairing of supply, geophysical, fishing and excursion vessels, as well as inland and offshore tank and cargo barges since 1913.
