FOURCHON, La. (April 7, 2008) – InterMoor Inc., an Acteon company, recently signed an agreement to lease space at its Fourchon, La., location to Halo, LLC. Halo’s facility will be built in InterMoor’s 25-acre yard and ultimately provide expanded services and capabilities to its customers.
The facility will include an 11,000-square-foot warehouse and fabrication shop; a hydraulic swaging machine capable of pressing up to 3.5 inch sleeves; and seven spooling units with the largest capable of handling 300,000 pounds. In addition, the facility will feature a three million pound, 220 ft. load test bed with 11 ft. stroke capable of testing mooring lines and heavy-lift slings of all types and sizes.
By leasing at the company’s facility, Halo gains access to InterMoor’s heavy lift capabilities. Those capabilities include the “Cajun Lifter,” an 880-ton ringer crane; two crawler cranes with 225 and 300-ton capacities; three conventional forklifts; and additional support equipment. InterMoor’s recently completed facility includes more than 1,200 feet of bulkhead waterfront dock space, a warehouse, office and training center. In addition to heavy-lift capabilities, InterMoor has storage space available to tenants.
“With the expansion of InterMoor’s Fourchon location comes a great opportunity for both InterMoor and its customers. Halo’s presence at this location provides expanded service opportunities and convenience to our customers,” said Tom Fulton, InterMoor president.
