With 22 drydocks in service, Bollinger Morgan City, L.L.C.

recently stretched its newly expanded dry dock (see a c c o m p a n y i n g photo) to the limit with the docking of former sulpher vessel (now bulk carrier) Otto Candie COV Zeus measuring 505 ft. (153.9 m). The vessel was laid up at the yard's largest drydock of its 22 located throughout the company's nine facilities. Measuring 340 x 134 ft.

(103.6 x 40.8 m) with 110 between the wingfalls, the dock is capable of lifting 8,100-tons.

Bollinger's Quick Repair-Harvey, La.- located propeller shop completed a thruster overhaul and repair for the PEMEX-owned accommodations semisubmersible Chemul on behalf of Cotamar.

The 34-ton 9.1 ft. diameter, 360 degree azimuthing Kamewa thruster underwent a complete overhaul with blade repairs. On another front, according to Boysie Bollinger, Bollinger's chairman of the board, the company was granted a contract from the U.S. Navy for the modification of three of the first 13 PCs to include the new stern ramp and other equipment weapons and upgrades in a pre-planned product improvement program, which could lead to — dependent upon funding — all 13 of the first block of PCs.
