Bordelon Marine LLC, Lockport, La., has signed a one-year firm charter agreement with Helix Robotics Solutions, the U.S. robotics division of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc. for the MV Shelia Bordelon, a 260' DP2 Jones Act compliant ultra-light intervention vessel. Bordelon Marine provides offshore support and subsea services operating in the Gulf of Mexico and internationally.

The Shelia Bordelon is mobilized with two Triton 200-hp ROVs with high spec survey capabilities operated by Helix. The charter began in late February 2022. While Helix expects the vessel primarily to support Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) operations for clients operating in U.S. waters, it can support international work as well.

With over 25 years of IRM expertise, Helix Robotics Solutions is well equipped to service clients’ light construction and renewables projects.
