Bordelon Marine Signs Term Contract with Baker Hughes
Bordelon Marine secured term contract with Baker Hughes to utilize the first Stingray series vessel, the MV Connor Bordelon as a well stimulation vessel.
The MV Connor Bordelon is the first of three vessels from the new Stingray series 260’ Class DP2 PSV and MPSV. All of the vessels will be built at Bordelon Marine Shipbuilders in Houma, LA. The 2nd and 3rd Stingray vessels are currently under construction with delivery dates of Q2 2014 and Q1 2015 respectively.
On this occasion Mr. Wes Bordelon, President/CEO made the following statement: “We are very excited to work with a marque client like Baker Hughes. They have an outstanding record and give the highest priority to the safety and well-being of their people and the environment. This culture aligns perfectly with ours, and for this reason and others, they are a company that we want to work for. The StimFORCE™ modular stimulation system is also a highly effective and proven system for well intervention. We are proud to be a part of this team and look forward to working with a wide range of clients throughout the Gulf.”
“We are very excited to introduce the new Stingray DP-2 PSV and MPSV series. The Stingray is a prototype design that incorporates a number of cutting edge features and capabilities, only commonly found in much larger new generation vessels. The concept here is to give our clients a more affordable MPSV or light IMR/ROV support vessel option.”
“The Stingray design offers all of the necessary cutting edge technologies and capabilities expected in a modern PSV today. But this series keeps it all within a 3,300 DW boat, which can stay within a reasonable cost range for our client.”
“We gave a lot of thought and consideration to the comfort of the Mariners, when we designed this vessel. These boats are the home away from home for our guys, and you can’t expect them to be safe, smart, and productive unless they are well rested and comfortable with their surroundings. Each stateroom has a private head, individual climate controls, and TV, internet and phone connections”
