An hour and a half west of New Orleans sits Morgan City, a small city on the banks of the Atchafalaya River that is home to one of Louisiana’s active ports and a number of innovators in the offshore industry. Join us for a tour that begins with the Port of Morgan City and continues with visits to the local offices of Intermoor, Oceaneering, and Metal Shark Boats.
The Port of Morgan City offers a multi-modal transportation network, including waterway access in four directions. The port is currently expanding its dock, which will yield 1,900 feet of waterfront, over 35 acres of storage and laydown area, and a 20,000-square-foot warehouse.
At InterMoor — an Acteon company and global provider of mooring, foundations, and subsea services — visitors will observe the capabilities of InterMoor’s Morgan City facility, which combined with the company’s facility at Fourchon, totals 59 acres and includes substantial craneage and bulkhead. InterMoor has steel rolling and fabrication capabilities, logistic and assembly services, and mooring line, anchor, and electrical cable storage and staging sites for offshore wind. The tour will continue to Oceaneering’s nearby offices where the engineering company will show how it uses cutting-edge technology and innovation to deliver solutions for the offshore wind market. Specifically, the tour will showcase Oceaneering’s range of software capabilities as well as its advanced remote operated vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicle, and uncrewed surface vessel. Attendees will also receive lunch at this stop.
A visit to one of Metal Shark Boats’ two South Louisiana shipyards will round out the tour. The designer and builder of more than 500 custom vessels currently has three Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) under construction. And at its Alabama shipyard, they recently completed a crew boat conversion to work in the offshore wind sector. Two of Metal Shark Boat’s 30-meter CTVs under construction will be on display for tour attendees.
This tour will depart from the Convention Center at 7 a.m. and return by 5 p.m. Coffee and snacks will be provided at the first stop, and lunch will be served at Oceaneering.
