Aries Marine Corporation ~ Lafayette, Louisiana
Aries Marine Corporation, a privately held Louisiana Corporation, was formed in early 1981 by Dwight S. Ramsay to own and operate self-elevating workboats and supply vessels in the Gulf of Mexico. Today, the fleet serves oil and gas, geo technical, industrial and offshore wind in both the Gulf of Mexico and East Coast Atlantic region.
The self-elevating work boats, also called Liftboats or Jack-Ups, provide mobile yet stable work platforms, crane capabilities and living accommodations for work crews performing services to various offshore and near coastal needs. The Liftboats range in leg length from 130′ to 215′, and are capable of operating in maximum water depths of 175′.
Primarily associated with drilling operations and industrial requirements, the supply vessels provide Aries with a diverse business mix within the marine industry. Our OSV’s, as they are commonly called, or PSV’s (Platform Supply Vessels) are the delivery trucks of the offshore sector. Our OSV vessels are 220′, all of which are dynamic positioning.
Currently, there are 20 vessels in the fleet.
Because of our diverse fleet, Aries has worked for all of the major oil and gas producers as well as most of the independents and is active within the offshore wind space. We have established a top reputation due to all Aries operations being conducted by experienced, safety minded personnel. Aries Marine takes pride in the cleanliness of its vessels, the efficiency of its operations and our excellent safety record.
Aries Marine is headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana and maintains a Mid-Atlantic Office out of Cape May, New Jersey. Aries Marine employs over 125 people.
