Jeffboat Building JAK-Fitted Barge

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

Amidst the crowd of river barges at Jeffboat, an ACL subsidiary, a new 50,000-barrel asphalt barge for Andrie Inc. stands out. This vessel is 360 by 60 with a 24-ft. molded depth. The barge’s cargo system includes a Fulton Thermal FT-1400-C with a 12m BTU per hour capacity that incorporates 32,500 ft. of 2.5-in. pipe and an insulated deck to keep the cargo at the proper temperature for delivery even while underway. The two 2,500 gpm cargo pumps are powered by a pair of Cummins QSM11-M engines each rated for 355 hp (continuous duty).  An additional Cummins QSM11-DM powers a 250 kW electric generator.
A 27-ft. deep notch fitted with JAK (articulation socket plates characterizes the stern of the barge. To push the barge the company’s 120-ft. 3,600 hp tug Karen Andrie has been fitted with the cylinder units for the JAK-400 coupling system in anticipation of the new barge.
The barge, to be named Endeavour, is fitted with four Seaway approved Markey mooring winches, two Markey anchor winches: one on the bow for a 5000-lb.Danforth and another on the stern for a 2250-lb. stockless anchor. Cargo hoses will be handled by a 15-ton capacity crane with a 60-ft. boom.
