Here’s a video of the January 29, 2014 launch ceremony of the MV Breeze at BAE Systems Southeast Shipyard in Jacksonville, Florida.
The DP-2 Platform Supply Vessel is one of 4 Jones Act PSV’s ordered by Jackson Offshore Operators of New Orleans. The company originally contracted BAE, Guido Perla & Associates and Rolls-Royce for two vessels back in January 2013 and has since exercised options for at least two more.
The vessels measure 252-feet long by 60-feet wide and come equipped with two Azipull propulsion thrusters, tunnel thrusters, a low-voltage front-end diesel electric system as well as Acon automation and Icon Dynamic Positioning (DP-2) systems – all supplied by Rolls Royce. The MV Breeze is expected to be delivered to the company this year.
“We are delighted to work with Guido Perla & Associates to build the two GPA 675J PSVs as their vessels are proven workhorses in offshore markets around the world,” said Lee Jackson back when the original contract was signed. “Rolls Royce will provide fully integrated power control and propulsion systems, and the vessels will be built at BAE Systems’ Jacksonville, Florida facility. Upon Delivery of these vessels they will begin a multi-year charter in the deepwater sector of the Gulf of Mexico.”
BAE Systems also experienced a fantastic sunset recently, captured by Patryk Zajdel in the following image which he shared with us.
