To complete the life extension of the tug, the underwater hull and topside was blasted and painted. The FRANCIS E. ROEHRIG was delivered on-time and on-budget. Chris Roehrig, President of Roehrig Maritime and a first time customer said, “I picked Atlantic because of their competitive pricing, reputation for quality workmanship and fast, on-time delivery.” Mr. Roehrig further stated, “I am very pleased with the project outcome, it met all of my expectations and I would use Atlantic for any of my future work.” Roehrig Maritime LLC owns and operates 6 well maintained tugs ranging from 1800 horsepower to 6000 horsepower.
