Bollinger Contract; Successfully
Lifts USS Aquila PHM-4
Bisso Marine Company, Inc., New
Orleans, La., recently completed a four-year contract with Bollinger
Machine Shop and Shipyard,
Lockport, La., and also successfully completed the task of lifting the USS
Aquila PHM-4 to a high cradle posi- tion on the bank at the Jacksonville
Shipyard in Florida.
The four-year contract with
Bollinger was completed by Bisso successfully launching forty-nine 110-foot Island-class USCG patrol boats using the derrick barge Ajax.
The vessels are being used by the
Coast Guard for rescue and in the
Coast Guard's drug interdiction pro- gram.
Bisso Marine Company received another two-year contract from
Bollinger to launch thirteen 170- foot U.S. Navy patrol boats now under construction. The launches will be done by Bisso's 700-ton der- rick barge Bisso at the Lockport facility.
The USS Aquila PHM-4 was suc- cessfully lifted by Bisso Marine from the St. Johns River to a high cradle position on the bank at the Jackson- ville Shipyard in Jacksonville, Fla.
The intricate task of lifting the vessel was accomplished by the 700- ton derrick barge Cappy Bisso.
Versabar Inc. of Harvey, La., sup- plied, tested and certified all of the lifting gear in order to meet the criteria of the U.S. Navy.
