HOUSTON-- Newly formed marine transportation company, Bee Mar, is introducing a fleet of DP-2 Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) for offshore support in the Gulf of Mexico and international markets.

The Bee Mar newbuild fleet will consist of five 210-ft (64-m) and three 234-ft (71-m) American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) classed DP-2 PSVs. Each vessel has high cargo carrying capacities and meets or exceeds the customer requirements and demands for offshore marine support applications.

The 210 ft x 56 ft x 18 ft (64 m x 17 m x 5 m) PSVs have superior cargo capacity, with 2,700 LT of cargo, a clear deck, 6,300 bbl of liquid mud and 6,000 cu. ft. of dry bulk capacity. The vessels are rated at 4,000 BHP.

The first two vessels, M/V Busy Bee and M/V Worker Bee, will be delivered by late June for service in the GoM, with a sister ship being delivered every 60 days thereafter. These vessels are currently under construction at Bollinger Shipyards’ Lockport, Louisiana shipyard.

The first of three 234 ft x 56 ft x 18 ft (71 m x 17 m x 5 m) PSVs with 3,000 LT of cargo capacity, is scheduled for delivery in March 2010, with two additional vessels to be delivered later that year. The clear deck on this class of vessel will be 175 ft x 47 ft (53 m X 14 m) with 9,000 bbl of liquid mud and 6,000 cu. ft. of dry bulk capacity.

The Bee Mar fleet will be supporting deepwater oil drilling and production, deep shelf E&P operations, offshore and subsea construction, and providing geophysical/seismic, and special well service support.
