VT Halter makes first 2004 delivery

VT Halter Marine Inc., a subsidiary of Vision Technologies Systems Inc. (which is, in turn, a subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Engineering), announced today the delivery of its first vessel in 2004, the “Seacor Pride”.

The 220-foot by 46-foot by 17-foot Offshore Supply Vessel  (OSV) is classed DPS-1 and can carry 5,100 barrels of liquid mud, 6,740 cubic feet of dry bulk along with fuel oil and fresh water.

The “Pride”, constructed at VT Halter Marine’s HMP (Halter Moss Point) Operations, is a high capacity supply vessel with a pair of Caterpillar 3516 main engines and a Caterpillar 3508 driving a 1,000 HP bow thruster. Two additional Caterpillar engines drive liquid mud pumps on one end and the compressor that powers the bulk mud system on the other end. 

Offshore Supply Vessels carry goods, supplies, individuals (in addition to the crew) or equipment used to support exploration and offshore production of mineral or energy sources. This state of the art OSV is U.S. flagged, ABS classed and complies with SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) requirements for international service.

CEO Butch King said,  “The VT Halter Marine team is built on a strong foundation that is made up of individuals who share a common commitment to quality.  The “Seacor Pride” is a reflection of the commitment that we invest in every phase of shipbuilding, from design to delivery.”
