Lockport, La. - Bollinger Amelia Repair L.L.C, and Bollinger Algiers L.L.C., two Bollinger Shipyards Inc. facilities, have re-delivered the tank barge B. No. 230 and tug Ralph E. Bouchard to Bouchard Transportation Co. Inc. in Melville, N.Y.   

The announcement of the barge and tug conversion completion was made by Bollinger Executive Vice President Ben Bordelon,

“We are pleased to announce the re-delivery of the ATB unit to Bouchard following a successful conversion, and regulatory updates at our two repair facilities,” said Bordelon. “Bouchard’s confidence in our ability to deliver quality workmanship from multiple facilities allowed us to complete the two projects simultaneously. We are fortunate to continue our long relationship with Bouchard and also be a part of their continued commitment to have first-class assets.”

The B. No. 230, a 138,000 barrel (BBL) black oil barge, equipped with inert gas, vapor recovery and closed gauging, measuring 467-feet x 80-feet x 36-feet, was docked at Bollinger’s Amelia facility for the addition of the Intercon coupler system and for regulatory work. The installation of the coupler will give the barge and tug the ability to be an articulated unit, allowing for improved maneuverability and sea-keeping.

The tug RALPH E. BOUCHARD underwent conversions at Bollinger‘s Algiers facility, receiving additional coolers and a keel-cooled John Deere 99 KW Tier 2 generator, set as back up to the main generators and for powering the Intercon hydraulic system. The vessel completed renewal of all regulatory requirements, installation of the Intercon system and received life extensions.
