Harvey Gulf International Authorizes Construction of First United States Flagged LNG OSV

On July 28, 2011, Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Board of Directors approved the construction of the first United States flagged LNG Offshore Supply Vessels. Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Chairman & CEO Shane J. Guidry stated that this is another example of Harvey Gulf’s commitment to meet its clients future needs. Mr. Guidry said that a contract will be awarded to a US shipyard on or before August 28, 2011.

The SV310DF vessels, designed by STX Marine Inc., will be dual-fuel with LNG capacity for seven days with three (3) engines at full RPM. In addition, the vessels will carry 5520 tons of deadweight at load line and have a transit speed of 13 knots. Mr. Guidry stated that, with the stringent Governmental demands for both reduced emissions and clean burning energy use, Harvey Gulf has decided to make the capital investment of 100 Million Dollars for two vessels.

STX Marine Inc., with offices located in Vancouver, British Columbia and Houston, Texas, is a consulting naval architecture and marine engineering company established in 1983 and is the leading designer of offshore support vessels for the North American and International markets.

Founded in 1955, Harvey Gulf International Marine is a marine transportation company that specializes in towing drilling rigs and providing offshore supply and multi-purpose support vessels for deepwater operations in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
