2024 Q1 Vessel Report

TDI-Brooks would like to extend our sincerest wishes to you for a delightful and prosperous New Year. The previous year has been marked by significant achievements, obstacles, and progress, and we are deeply appreciative of your steadfast support and cooperation. Your confidence in our organization has played a crucial role in our journey, and we eagerly anticipate furthering this alliance in the upcoming year.

Please find below our Q1 vessel updates for your review. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance with your offshore surveys or vessel requirements.

An extraordinary event at our Bridgeport, CT facility: the simultaneous docking of our three prestigious U.S. — flagged / Jones Act compliant vessels — the R/V Brooks McCall, R/V Miss Emma McCall, and the OSV Marcelle Bordelon. This unique occurrence underscores our commitment to oceanographic exploration and maritime excellence.

Each ship in our fleet has a distinct narrative of innovation and success. The R/V Brooks McCall has been pivotal in pioneering geotechnical and environmental survey operations, including notable Department of Defense projects, across varied marine environments. The R/V Miss Emma McCall, excels in geophysical operations, playing a significant role in offshore hazard assessments and seabed mapping. The OSV Marcelle Bordelon showcases our adaptability and versatility in meeting diverse maritime challenges.

Our fleet is equipped with advanced technology, featuring high-speed heavy winches, multifunctional A-frames, and the latest Starlink satellite communications for effective ship-to-shore communication and data transfer. This integration of technology, combined with the expertise of our USCG-licensed mariners, and the knowledge of our in-house technical teams and scientists, positions TDI-Brooks at the forefront of operational efficiency and scientific innovation in oceanographic research. ~Richard Byno, Director of Marine Operations
