USACE Proposes Towboat Acquisition

Wednesday, July 28, 1999
The Marine Design Center (MDC) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) plans to obtain an inland river style towboat for the purpose of serving the USACE St. Louis District (CELMS) in its next mission. With measurements of 51 x 19 ft., and a design draft of 5.3 ft. the towboat will have an approximate total of 880 hp. The vessel will be used to provide towing and tender service to other district plants and will be suitable for year-round operation in both shallow, and ice and drift-strewn rivers of the Mississippi Navigation System. Designed, built and classed to ABS rules for Steel Vessels on Rivers and Intracoastal Waterways, the vessel will be a twin-screw open propeller diesel with an all-welded steel hull and superstructure.
