U.S. Barge Delivers for Harley Marine

Thursday, October 21, 2010

U.S. Barge delivered another petroleum barge to Harley Marine Services. The Barge Anne Elizabeth was christened on October 4, 2010 by her namesake, Anne Elizabeth Hall. Barge Anne Elizabeth measures 241’ x 64’ 6”, with a depth of 23’ 6”. The barge has a carrying capacity of 31,500 barrels. The double-hulled barge is OPA 90-compliant, with vapor collection piping. The barge has two isolated cargo systems. The main cargo is intended to be fuel oil, and the auxiliary system will handle marine gas oil (MGO).

“Working closely with Harley Marine’s technical and operations group, U.S. Barge continues to construct and outfit high quality vessels that meet our expectations. We are very happy with the production and craftsmanship of U.S. Barge and will continue to look to them for our future build needs,” states Director of Petroleum Barge Operations, Keith Barnes. “Harley Marine Services continues its goal of double hull compliance by 2012. Delivery of this barge marks the 5th barge in this class from U.S. Barge.”

All outfitting was completed in-house by U.S. Barge. Barge Anne Elizabeth is outfitted with a 65 foot, fixed boom and an 11 ton hydraulic crane with main and auxiliary winches. Hydraulic power is provided by twin pressure-compensated pumps with electronic clutches. The barge contains a state of the art monitoring system with tank sensors and alarms, and a vapor control system.

This new addition to the Harley Marine Services’ fleet carries on their longstanding tradition of naming barges for heroes in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Anne Elizabeth Hall was born in 1997 and, shortly thereafter, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. She is currently a visible leader in the fight to raise awareness and develop new treatments for the disease. The Anne Elizabeth is the 20th double hull barge in the Harley Marine fleet and will operate on the U.S. West Coast.

U.S. Barge is owned by Vigor Industrial LLC.
