  • Wendle Huddleston, president and chief executive officer of the HUDCO Group based in Morgan City, La., announced that Hudson Shipbuilders, Inc. (HUDSHIP) of Pascagoula, Miss., has recently delivered the 112-foot offshore utility vessel M / V Lamnalco Mallard to Lamnalco Limited, Dasmah, Kuwait.

    The Mallard, the third vessel HUDSHIP has built for Lamnalco, has sailed for the Arabian Gulf, where she will operate out of Sharjah, U.A.E.

    Principal dimensions of the Mallard are 112 feet by 26 feet by 10 feet, with a deck cargo capacity of 100 tons. Power is provided by twin GM 16V92 diesel engines delivering a total of 1,272 bhp through Twin Disc model MG-527 gears at 5.17:1 ratio.

    Auxiliary power is furnished by twin 50-kw generators driven by GM 4-71 diesel engines.

    All living spaces, pilothouse and galley areas are air-conditioned to provide for crew comfort.

    The living areas are designed and arranged to provide spacious accommodations f o r each crewman. Three 4-man staterooms are provided on the main deck, and two 2-man staterooms are located on the fo'c'sle deck.

    The Mallard's sister ship Teal was launched from ceremonies on HUDSHIP's east bank yard with the crew of the Mallard watching just prior to their departure for the Arabian Gulf.

    Lamnalco has greatly increased its fleet of owned and managed vessels in the last year, and they are especially proud of retaining their position as one of the market leaders in the highly competitive field of offshore supply charters in the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea.

    Hudson Shipbuilders, Inc., a division of the HUDCO Group, is nearing completion on the expansion of its west bank facility.

    New translation rails, launchways, and bulkheads are in the final stages of completion and are keeping pace with the construction of the large offshore supply vessels under contract at the west bank.
