Moran Towing Earlier Player in Gulf Spill Response

Thursday, August 12, 2010

According to a report from The Stamford Advocate, within the first days of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill four months ago, New Canaan-based Moran Towing Corp. was employed to help recover the gushing petroleum and launch a separate operation cleaning up beaches in Alabama and Florida. Before the well was capped, the barge Massachusetts and tug Mary Moran rendezvoused with BP's Discoverer Enterprise oil rig and take on the oil, sea water and other materials being drawn from the sea floor for transfer to Gulf of Mexico ports. The company's tugboat Catherine B. Moran also helped at the site, tending the hose link between the Discoverer Enterprise before the well was capped. The Connecticut, a second barge, and the tugboat Joan Turecamo also took part in efforts to skim the waters for oil.
