U.S. Barge Delivers for Harley Marine

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

U.S. Barge recently delivered another high capacity petroleum barge to Harley Marine Services. Barge Sixty-Five Roses is a unique design from Elliott Bay Design Group. With new efficiency and voluntary environmental features incorporated into the design, the barge continues Harley’s pattern of continuous improvement. Barge Sixty-Five Roses is a 422 x 76-ft. tank barge with capacity of 83,600 barrels. Outfitting requirements include two vertical turbine cargo pump systems, a cargo heating system, a vapor recovery system, two hose cranes, and five hydraulic mooring winches. There are provisions for the future addition of a self-contained vapor processing unit. All outfitting was completed in house by U.S. Barge.

U.S. Barge’s facility is ideally arranged for construction of very large barges. Their buildway is 800 ft. long and served by a 600-ton gantry crane. The company owns 150,000 sq. ft. of covered fabrication bays with high ceilings and overhead crane service. The hull was designed for optimal performance under tow and reduced fuel consumption.

Harley Marine Services invested in a tow tank testing program with a goal of reducing their carbon footprint. Barge Sixty-Five Roses represents the flagship in this new line of barges. U.S. Barge is owned by Vigor Industrial LLC. With expertise ranging from bluewater to inland river, the company offers turn-key delivery of state-of-the-art OPA 90 compliant barges. The company has constructed deck, crane, and tank barges for a variety of customers. US Barge has inhouse resources to handle fabrication projects from design through final outfitting.
