It will be coupled with existing K-Sea tugs equipped with the state-of-the-art JAK 400 tug/barge Push-Pin System. The 100,000 BBL capacity barge will measure 400-feet in length, 74-foot beam and 25-foot depth, with a displacement of approximately 16,450 tons. Delivery is planned for the fall of 2005.
