Edison Chouest Offshore has begun a new series of eight offshore supply vessels that will be built in Houma, Larose and Tampa, Fla., the company said Wednesday.
The newly announced series will be in the 280-foot range and adaptable to a range of jobs, said spokesman Lonnie Thibodeaux, who would not elaborate on the cost or further details.
“Our design plans also take into account the potential of future modifications for deployment in the Arctic,” said Dino Chouest, vice president of operations for the company.
