Trinity Offshore, LLC, Gulfport, Miss. is the shipbuilder selected to build the two U.S.-flag, LNG-fueled offshore support vessels approved by the Board of Harvey Gulf International Marine at the end of July.
Trinity Offshore is the sister company to Trinity Yachts and specializes in construction of aluminum, steel and composite commercial tugs, offshore vessels and patrol craft.
VP and shareholder Billy Smith told Marine Log today that the Harvey Gulf order will likely see a transfer of LNG technology to the mega yacht sector that is Trinity Yachts' specialty, with one mega yacht customer already showing keen interest.
As reported earlier today, the Harvey Gulf OSV's will be powered by Wärtsilä 6-cylinder 34DF dual-fuel engines.
