We’re very pleased to share the great news today, April 26, 2022, that Guice Offshore (“GO”) has expanded our offshore supply vessel fleet!
The three new vessels will operate as the GO Explorer (170 ft. DP1 MPSV), GO Crusader (205 ft. DP2 PSV) and GO Adventurer (205 ft. DP2 MPSV). All are Jones Act qualified and dually certified Subchapter L & I by the U.S. Coast Guard.
The GO Explorer and GO Crusader recently completed special survey dry docks and upgrades, and were immediately deployed to charters in the specialty marketplace. The GO Explorer received two new main engines, one new generator engine and a thruster drive update. The GO Crusader received top-end overhauls on all main engines and generators, along with new thruster drive components and an upgrade to her crew lounge. Both vessels now incorporate next-generation dynamic positioning software, communications gear and camera systems.
The GO Adventurer is completing her special survey with an expanded complement of enhancements and mission-critical equipment. Upon her availability in early May 2022, she will be Guice Offshore’s largest “midsize” multi-purpose vessel, replete with a knuckle boom crane, 15-ton A-Frame and an accommodation suite to house and office 40 personnel.
All are fitted to address the widest array of our customers’ needs in the growing U.S. offshore wind energy industry, along with those in aerospace; renewable energy; oil and gas; government and military; environmental; disaster response and recovery; inspection, maintenance and repair; science research; salvage; geotechnical surveying; and documentary and filmmaking markets.
“These and all Guice Offshore vessels have undergone significant technical, structural and/or equipment enhancements to meet the most demanding customer requirements,” Guice Offshore principal Billy Guice noted. “Our fleet is well-maintained, well-manned and features ample accommodations and sought-after equipment such as A-frames, cranes, winches, moonpools, deck sockets and essentials to facilitate a spectrum of highly specialized offshore projects.”
Guice Offshore has formed strategic partnerships along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and Eastern Seaboard, from South Florida to Connecticut, and maintains its highly capable vessels in accessible locations for quick response to myriad needs of the many industries it serves.
Additionally, our subsidiary, GO Marine Services, a catering and offshore labor contractor, supports mission requirements that help minimize mobilization time and expense for Guice Offshore customers with special services like marine riggers, roustabouts and certified protected species observers in compliance with marine mammal regulatory requirements.
