Harley Marine Signs Multi-barge Construction Contract

Press Release
Thursday, October 25, 2012

Harley Marine Services orders 4 new Sister-class petroleum barges from Conrad Shipyards of Morgan City, Lousiana.

Each double-hulled unit has a carrying capacity of 30,000 barrels and measures 297 feet in length.  Once completed the barges will enter the Harley Marine Gulf fleet and service customers in the United States Gulf Region.

The barges were designed by Conrad Industries with input from Harley Marine’s management team to ensure internal and regulatory performance requirements were not only met but exceeded.  Each barge will be built with the most technically and environmentally advanced equipment available to meet the specific needs of Harley Marine’s customers and expanding business markets.
 
Each barge has a molded beam of 54 feet and a molded depth of 12 feet.  The 30,000 barrel barges are outfitted with six cargo compartments as well as an environmentally friendly vapor recovery and return system.  Onboard machinery includes two Byron Jackson cargo pumps and two Cummins 6CTA8, 270 horsepower engines. The four barges will also be equipped with Bergan Guard high level and overfill alarm systems with magnetic tank level gauges.
 
Harley Marine Services will name three of the four barges after 14 year old triplets living with cystic fibrosis, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of roughly 30,000 children and adults living in the United States.  The first three will be named Jared Joseph, Nicholas Ray, and Allison Jane to commemorate these three young children living with this devastating disease.  The last will be named after a young girl, Maci Bryan who is just ten years old, also living with cystic fibrosis.  Harley Marine is very proud and honored to name these barges after such young fighters and survivors of cystic fibrosis, and we will continue “Cruisin’ For a Cure” until we can proudly name a barge “Cure Found”.
