Eastern Shipyards Converts Two Offshore Vessels To Ensco Marine
Eastern Shipyards, Inc., Panama City, Fla., recently delivered two enlarged and completely refurbished offshore vessels to Ensco Marine, Broussard, La.
The former 156-foot supply vessels Gulf Stream I and Gulf Stream II, were acquired by Eastern Shipyards and contracted to Ensco Marine on a turn-key refurbishment/ sales arrangement. The vessels did not include liquid mud tanks and required extensive re-engineering for the length extensioning and refurbishment programs.
The converted vessels, Ensco Cruiser and Ensco Transport, measure 184 feet in length, with a beam of 39 feet and 14-foot depth, with capacities of 4,400 cubic feet of bulk mud, 1,412 barrels of liquid mud, and 118,532 gallons of rig water.
Each has a clear deck length of 130 feet and deck cargo capacity of approximately 700 long tons.
Eastern Shipyards employed advanced modular fabrication techniques to construct the 28-foot by 39-foot mid-body sections for both vessels.
All main engines and auxiliary machinery was either completely rebuilt or overhauled. New bowthrusters and drive engines were installed, and independent, direct drive liquid mud pumps and piping systems were installed on each vessel.
