Bollinger Shipyards announced their Bollinger Fourchon facility has worked 12 years without a lost time accident. Bollinger said they strive for zero accidents and that workforce, contractor and customer safety is a priority of facility operations.
Ben Bordelon, executive vice president of Bollinger Shipyards said, “Our Fourchon personnel have withstood the test of time, as our shipyard in Port Fourchon has grown over the past 12 years. With the sustained effort of our employees, Bollinger continues to be one of the safest shipyards in America.”
In May, 2013, Bollinger was awarded the “Award for Excellence in Safety” for the eighth consecutive year by the Shipbuilders Council of America, which represents over 120 shipyards located throughout the United States.
The Bollinger Fourchon shipyard services the nation’s busiest oil and gas support terminals in the United States. The facility specializes in all aspects of shipyard requirements, including top side and dry-docking needs, repairs/conversions, fabrication and project support for a very diverse fleet of vessels ranging from drilling rigs to supply boats, to multi-purpose support vessels of all sizes.
