Originally inaugurated in 2011, the 24-acre facility was subsequently expanded to 34 acres. Since its inception eight years ago, the purpose-built facility has successfully completed hundreds of fabrication projects, including over a hundred steel piles installed offshore for the largest oil and gas projects in the Gulf of Mexico and abroad.
Amenities include more than 30,000-sq-ft of fabrication space; mooring equipment storage capabilities; a 12,000-sq-ft multi-purpose building for administrative and operations employees; dock side loadout areas; and a state-of-the-art 20,000-sq-ft blasting and painting facility. Equipment includes extensive crane capability and a DAVI model 3060, four-roll, fully-hydraulic plate rolling machine, which can roll up to 2 ¾” thick mild steel and accommodate plate widths of up to 10‐ft., allowing production ranges from 9 ft. OD up to 20 ft. OD.
Recently added competencies include sub-arc welding and pressure-rated piping for the fabrication of PLETs and jumpers.
Martin Kobiela, President, InterMoor Inc., says “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the Morgan City Port Authority. The renewal of this lease for five more years, plus 5 additional 5-year options, is a testament to how strategically important InterMoor views this fabrication facility, as a crucial part of their global life-cycle mooring solution that includes design, fabrication, installation, and up to decommissioning. Our facility is proud to contribute to the local economy with 100 full time positions and many contract jobs. For our clients, it has continuously demonstrated its excellence in fabrication and, of course, convenience since it allows easy access to all major US ports and offshore areas.”
Raymond “Mac” Wade, Executive Director, Morgan City Harbor and Terminal District, says “This is a big day for the Port of Morgan City and InterMoor. It shows a commitment to their employees and the community that InterMoor is here for the long run. We are grateful InterMoor has chosen Morgan City as their base of operation in Louisiana.”
InterMoor’s Morgan City facility is ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certified, and recently achieved ISO 45001:2018 certification.
