Leevac Shipyards A w a r d ed Supply Boat Contract

Leevac Shipyards, Inc., based in Jennings, La., was recently awarded a contract by a U.S. Gulf Coast firm to build a 200-foot offshore supply boat. This will be one of the first contracts for the construction of an offshore supply boat in the United States in about five years.

The vessel, with a 40-foot beam and a draft of 15 feet, will be powered by 12-645C EMD engines, providing approximately 3,000 hp, and a 600-hp bow thruster.

The vessel will have capacity of 1,600 barrels of liquid mud, 5,000 cubic feet of bulk mud, and about 50,000 gallons of fuel. The as-yetunnamed ship is scheduled for delivery in December.

Located on the Mermentau River, 32 miles north of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, Leevac Shipyards, Inc. has been in the business of building, converting and repairing supply, geophysical, fishing and excursion vessels, as well as inland and offshore tank and cargo barges since 1913.
