Thursday, July 26, 2007
On July 28, Crowley Maritime Corporation will christen the 455-2, the second of three new Heavy Lift 455 series deck barges being built to handle project work for the offshore energy industry - primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. The 455-2 is one of three 400 x 105-ft.-wide deck barges to be built at Gunderson Marine's shipyard in Portland, Oregon. The media is invited to attend this christening, which will feature the traditional breaking of a champagne bottle against the hull and the subsequent launch and spectacular splashdown into the Willamette River.
