McDonough Marine Service announced the launching of the MARMAC 302, the first of two new 300’ x 100’ x 20' ABS Class ocean going barges commissioned by the barge and marine transportation company.
The barges were designed by Dan Jones & Associates with an ABS Load line maximum cargo capacity of 13,200 short tons at 15.7’ draft. The uniform deck strength of 4,500 lbs/sq. ft., combined with a increased side shell strength, provides clients with maximum hull protection. Additionally, the latest industry design provides charterers the greatest opportunity to thrive in the increasingly challenging Gulf of Mexico offshore cargo markets.
The MARMAC 302 booked its maiden voyage to Venezuela and will return to be fleeted in Morgan City, LA. McDonough Marine Service continues to demonstrate a commitment to maintaining the most comprehensive fleet of barges in the U.S.
