Trinity Signs Contract for Four Tank Barges; Refurbishes Passenger Boat

The Trinity Marine Group, Gulfport, Miss., has been awarded a contract by LeBeouf Bros. Towing Co., Inc., Houma, La., for the construction of four, 297.5 ft. (90.7 m) inland waterways, double-skin petroleum tank barges, with an option for four more identical barges.

They will be built at Trinity-Ashland City, a former Nashville Bridge Co. (NABRICO) shipyard. Overall, the barges will be 297.5 ft. in length, with a 54-ft (16.5-m) beam and a 12-ft. (3.7 m) deep hull. The cargo tanks will be built for three pounds per square inch (PSI) working pressure and a vapor recovery system. Their design will also reportedly allow for future installation of a hot oil heating system. Additionally, John James Audubon was drydocked to have barnacles, algae and other matter removed from the hull by steam cleaning and sandblasting prior to repainting at Trinity-Gulf Repair. The 600-passenger boat was in the Trinity repair and conversion shipyard to undergo routine maintenance as well as the repair of holes in a tank, repacking of stuffing boxes, servicing of sea valves, removal of rope wrapped around the propeller shaft and a new paint job for the vessel's bottom. Trinity-Gulf Repair is one of the Trinity Marine Group shipyards, and is owned by Trinity Industries, Inc., Dallas. The group includes 21 shipyards.
