Harvey Gulf International Marine has taken delivery of the second 340′ Multi-Purpose Support Vessel (MPSV) Harvey Blue-Sea.
According to Harvey Gulf chairman and CEO Shane Guidry, the MPSV will enhance the domestic Jones Act fleet.
Harvey Gulf now owns and operates the two largest US flag construction vessels in the US Gulf of Mexico, having taken delivery of the sister vessel Harvey Sub-Sea in July of 2017, the company said.
The Harvey Blue-Sea is capable of performing subsea installations and removals, inspection, repair and floatel services. It can be equipped to lay umbilicals and cables and perform well-intervention and hydrate remediation operations.
The vessel is equipped with a 250-ton knuckle boom, active heave compensated crane equipped with 4000 meters of wire. The crane’s winch is below deck, expanding its lifting capacity and enabling loads of 107 metric tons to be delivered to water depths of 12,000 ft.
