It was a busy week for Swiftships’ production team as they successfully completed a hull roll over and vessel launch. Swiftships met two milestones for the construction of two 175 foot fast supply vessels (FSVs) for Rodi Marine, based in Lafayette, La. Hull 623 is expected to be delivered to Rodi Marine by the end of May and be fully operational in the Gulf of Mexico shortly after delivery. Hull 630 was launched on April 16 where interiors are soon to be installed. These FSVs are the first commercial vessels to be propelled with Marine Jet Power waterjets and are expected to reach speeds up to reach speeds in excess of 31 knots.
