Trinity signs contract for natural-gas vessels

Trinity Yachts' sister company, Trinity Offshore, last week was awarded the Harvey Gulf International Marine contract to build two 302-foot-by-64-foot Dual Fuel Offshore Supply Vessels that are capable of operating exclusively on natural gas, the company announced.

The inaugural U.S.-flagged, LNG-powered boats will achieve Enviro+, Green Passport Certification by the American Bureau of Shipping.

“In short, they will be the most environmentally friendly craft of this size,” the company said. “The project will employ 300 for the next 30 months and is a significant step for Trinity Offshore’s re-entry into the deep-water support vessel sector.”
