Bordelon Marine Wins Tidewater Charter

Tidewater Subsea has chartered Bordelon Marine’s recently delivered ultra-light intervention vessel the MV Brandon Bordelon for sixty days plus options.

Tidewater Subsea is mobilizing two FMC Technologies Schilling HP 150 ROVs to the vessel, capable to perform a variety of operations, including IMR, light construction, survey and inspection work.

The vessel delivers a fully integrated ROV control room, ROV support offices, below deck work and storage spaces, extensive communications and ROV data network, plug and play, with patch panel racks installed. All systems are fully interfaced with the vessel systems, bridge, office, and accommodation spaces.

Wes Bordelon, president and CEO, of Bordelon Marine, said: “We are very excited to work with Tidewater Subsea. Being a vessel operator, we speak the same language on day one. But Jason and his team also bring a wealth of ROV and subsea experience to the game. And when partnered with our new Stingray ULIV design, I think we will be very successful in the light IMR and Intervention space. The vessel and ROV systems are new and state of the art. This vessel is truly a high spec, fit for purpose, Jones Act-compliant solution that gives the client an affordable option to the larger MPSVs.”
