Sixty-Five Roses is a 422’x 76’ tank barge with capacity of 83,600 barrels presently employed in U.S. West Coast Trade under Charter to a Major Oil Company. Built by Vigor in Portland, Ore., the barge is of double hull design and constructed to exceed OPA 90 Double Hull Standards. Fully loaded she displaces 13,150 Long Tons DWT. She is certified ABS Maltese Cross A1 Oceans.

Vigor Fab has been awarded a contract to build two 83,000 bbl. tank barges for Harley Marine Services, Inc.  The 422’x 76’ x 27’ tank barges, designed by Elliott Bay Design Group to be part of articulated tug and barge configurations, will be among the largest vessels constructed for Harley Marine’s fleet.

Construction will begin this month at Vigor’s 60-acre shipyard in Portland, Ore. With an 800 foot buildway, 600 ton gantry crane, and 360,000 square feet of covered fabrication areas, the yard is well equipped to handle large projects like these. Vigor also built the Sixty-Five Roses tank barge, about the same size as the new barges and currently the largest vessel in Harley’s fleet, in Portland.

“These vessels will be the ninth and tenth we’ve built for Harley Marine,” said Bryan Nichols, Vigor’s Sales and Marketing Manager. “We’re glad we could earn this opportunity to help Harley expand their fleet. We work hard to provide the best possible products and services, and there’s no higher compliment than repeat business.”

“Vigor has been an excellent partner in building barges over the years. Vigor not only has the capacity needed to build multiple large vessels, they consistently provide the quality craftsmanship we depend on to serve our customers,” said Keith Barnes, Harley Marine’s Director of Petroleum Barge Operations.

The first tank barge is scheduled for delivery in spring 2015, with the second barge set for delivery in the summer of 2015.
