New Orleans-headquartered Harvey Gulf International Marine announces that Mike Carroll will join the organization in March in the position of Senior Vice President of New Construction and Special Projects based in Houston, Texas.
Carroll has over 15 years of experience in the field of naval architecture and ship construction. He will be responsible for overseeing Harvey Gulf’s new construction programs.
In another development, Harvey Gulf also announced today that it has secured plans to build two U.S flag, Jones-act compliant offshore construction vessels. The vessels will be 328 feet (100m) and 360 feet (110m) in length overall. Both vessels will be diesel electric and equipped with 250T AHC knuckle-boom sub-sea cranes, work-class ROVs, and in excess of 100 persons on board suitable for both domestic and international deepwater operations.
Currently, Harvey Gulf is set for delivery of their first construction vessel, the STX CV310 from Eastern Shipbuilding Group in Panama City, Fla. The 310 foot (94.5m) vessel when completed will have a 165T AHC knuckle-boom subsea crane capable of 100T of cargo at 10,000ft of water depth.
