ABS to Class US' First LNG Bunker Barge

October 30, 2015

ABS has been selected to class an LNG bunker barge under construction at Conrad Orange Shipyard, Inc, a division of Conrad Shipyard, LLC, for WesPac Midstream LLC and Clean Marine Energy LLC (CME), the classification society announced.
 
The 2,200 cu m barge is scheduled for delivery in mid-2016 and will initially be deployed in Tacoma, Wash., to service shipowner Totem Ocean Trailer Express’s (Totem Ocean) Orca Class ro-ro vessels. The unit will then be relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., to serve parent company TOTE’s Marlin Class dual-fuel container vessels and other LNG-powered vessels in the Port of Jacksonville.
 
Designed by Bristol Harbor Group Inc, the barge features a single tank equipped with the Mark III Flex cargo containment system supplied by GTT North America. The barge will also feature the GTT-developed REACH4 bunker mast to ensure safe and efficient transfer of LNG fuel to the receiving vessel.
 
WesPac/CME plans to exercise its options with Conrad to construct additional LNG bunker barges to serve other North American ports.
