Louisiana-based Bordelon Marine has taken delivery of the M/V Shelia Bordelon, the second of two new Stingray 260 class Ultra-Light Intervention Vessels (ULIV).
The highly specialized DP2 vessel was built at Bordelon Marine Shipbuilders yard in Houma, LA and features a NOV 50 ton Active Heave Compensating crane with 3,000 meters of wire, a mezzanine deck with internal office and control rooms, capable of supporting two full work class ROV systems.
The 260-foot M/V Shelia Bordelon also offers 6,200 sq. ft. of clear useable deck space, POB of 60, and two independent thru-hull USBL systems. The vessel is also equipped with four additional below deck Tier 3 generators, providing fully redundant power to the crane and ROV systems.
“We are very excited to introduce the M/V Shelia Bordelon and the ULIV concept to the subsea market,” commented Wes Bordelon, President and CEO of Bordelon Marine. “We think it hits a sweet spot and provides an affordable high-spec option that the industry is currently missing. As subsea infrastructure develops, the ULIV will play an increasingly important role in the vessel portfolio of these projects. Thus providing a much needed cost benefit option to the client.”
The Shelia Bordelon also features a pink stripe and the Susan G. Komen logo, named in honor of Shelia Harasimowicz, Wes Bordelon’s mother-in-law, and two time breast cancer survivor. Bordelon Marine has committed to a year long campaign to fight breast cancer, and plans to donate a portion of the profits from the M/V Shelia Bordelon to the New Orleans affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The MV Shelia Bordelon is the second of two US-flagged ULIVs for Bordelon. In January, the company took delivery of the MV Brandon Bordelon, which is scheduled to begin a three year charter with Bibby Subsea in August 2015.
