TY Offshore and FMT Industries Christen and Launch FMT 3242, the First of Ten 30,000 Barrel Tank Barges

 

Trinity Offshore, LLC and FMT Industries, LLC are pleased to announce the christening and launch of FMT 3242, the first of ten 297’6” x 54’ x 12’, 30,000 barrel tank barges. The festivities were held at TY Offshore’s Gulfport, Mississippi facility yesterday, July 24, 2012, and mark the first launch of what will become an entire fleet of barges. The remaining launches will follow on at thirty day intervals. FMT Industries, LLC, is one of the several companies within the Florida Marine Group (Florida Marine). The barges are being built at TY Offshore’s Gulfport, Mississippi facility.


Florida Marine’s Chairman and CEO, Dennis A. Pasentine, says, “In the commercial marine sector, there is nothing more time honored than christening a vessel and pressing her to service. To be launching the first of ten identical vessels is that much more exciting. With TY Offshore’s keen attention to the design/build process, we’re able to report back to our customers that we’re on time and on budget. This fulfills expectations and creates confidence in the project management needed to complete the construction of the other nine barges.”
