Trinity Marine To Build Fourth Supply Boat For U.S. Owner

Oil & Gas Rental Services, Inc., Morgan City, La., has exercised its option with Halter Marine, Inc., Lockport, La., to build a fourth 220- foot all-steel offshore supply boat.

Construction and delivery of the $5- million-plus boat will be in 1991.

In June 1990, the two companies announced a three-vessel contract, saying that they would be the first of their type designed and built from the keel-up since the downturn in the offshore energy industries in the early 1980s.

John Dane III, president of the Trinity Marine Group, which includes Halter Marine, said, "The exercise of this option is encouraging because it is a sign of a return to a more normal pattern of commercial shipbuilding activity." Like her sisters, the new vessel will have an overall length of 220 feet, beam of 44 feet and 16-foot depth. She will be powered by two GM EMD 16-645-C diesel engines, rated at 1,950 hp each at 900 rpm.
