Covington, Louisiana-based Hornbeck Offshore has announced contract to supply a Jones Act-qualified offshore supply vessel to support the Navy’s submarine fleet operational and rescue requirements in the Atlantic Ocean.
The contract comes with a firm-fixed-price of $8.7 million covering an initial 182-day base period, plus one 182-day option period and another 120-day option period which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to more than $19.3 million.
The vessel, the HOS Rosebud, is believed to one of three OSVs that Hornbeck picked up at auction from the U.S. Maritime Administration back in February. At the time, Hornbeck said the vessels would be reactivated and potentially deployed in the U.S. domestic offshore wind market, or to the military.
This latest contract was awarded by the Military Sealift Command and covers the operation and crewing of the vessel.
