Campbell Transportation, Inc. announced today that it will christen two newly built state-of-the-art towboats and a drydock on Tuesday, June 25. This marks the first new vessel construction in Pittsburgh in 30 years, a significant investment that will help create jobs and benefit the economy. The ceremony and celebration are an invitation-only event scheduled to be held at the North Shore River Walk in Pittsburgh. The drydock was partially built with a small shipyard grant from the U.S Maritime Administration (MARAD) and constructed at the Campbell Transportation shipyard in Congo, West Virginia. The construction of the two towboats at the Campbell shipyard in Dunlevy, Pennsylvania also benefitted indirectly from stimulus money provided through MARAD in 2009 for new industrial fabrication. Representatives from MARAD will christen the drydock and a number of representatives of Pennsylvania and West Virginia’s elected federal officials will attend the christening ceremony. The specs for the towboats and the drydock are included below. The two new towboats, m/v Renee Lynn and m/v Alice Jean, have been constructed to comply with new U.S. Coast Guard Subchapter M inspection regulations. The towboats will be officially named after the wife and the mother of two long-term employees of Campbell Transportation; Renee Lynn Grizzel, wife of Steve Grizzel, Director of Human Resources, and Alice Jean Corigliano, mother of Ron Corigliano, Director of Regulatory Compliance.
