CargoFlexX wins dry bulk-handling systems contract from Gulf of Mexico

Dutch firm CargoFlexX has received a contract from the Gulf of Mexico for the delivery of FlexXVac dry bulk-handling systems.

Dutch firm CargoFlexX has received a contract from the Gulf of Mexico for the delivery of FlexXVac dry bulk-handling systems.

The new systems will be integrated onboard the new SOLAS offshore support vessels (OSV) being built for SEACOR Marine’s new-building programme.

The latest integration will make SEACOR Marine the first US OSV operator with the FlexXVac system working in the Gulf of Mexico.

Claimed to be an alternative for conventional P-tank dry bulk handling systems, the implementation of the FlexXVac system would enable SEACOR Marine to carry an additional 33% dry bulk onboard the new vessels under construction.

“With the FlexXVac system we expect to set a new standard for vessel operators in the Gulf of Mexico.”

CargoFlexX commercial director Sander Castel said: “With the FlexXVac system we expect to set a new standard for vessel operators in the Gulf of Mexico.

“This system will be the new alternative on the outdated conventional P-tank systems.

“Besides the already mentioned benefits the system is also very environmentally friendly with zero dust emission during operation, a subject which is getting more and more important these days.”

The new-generation SOLAS OSV’s are set for construction by Alabama-based Master Boat Builders, and the company will be the first US shipyard constructing vessels with the FlexXVac system.

The first FlexXVac system vessel is expected to be delivered this year.
