Metal Trades, Inc. announced the completion of two double hull Fuel Barges for the U.S. Navy as a sub-contractor to Maybank Industries. The ABS classed 7,000 barrel barges are designed to carry diesel and JP-5 fuel in four cargo tanks within a 180 foot long by 44 foot wide hull. These two barges are being delivered to Pacific Naval Facilities. The two barges (YON-332 and YON-333) were designed by Bristol Harbor Group. Metal Trades will be launching two more double hull barges in 2012 for the same customer, with final delivery to U.S. Naval facilities on the East Coast. According to Randy Brown, the Metal Trades’ VP of Operations and Barge Construction Program Manager, “We are proud of the extremely positive feedback that we received from our government customer during the recent delivery trials. Metal Trades has raised the bar in terms of overall quality for these types of barges. I think this is attributable to the fact that our barges are built with a great deal of pride by some of the best welders and craftsman in the business.”
