The newly built tank barge, the Fight A.L.S., was delivered to Harley Marine Services on February 19, 2016.

Designed by Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) and constructed at Vigor Fab in Portland, Ore., the 83,000 bbl tank barge joins Harley’s offshore fleet working the Gulf and East Coast to transport clean petroleum products, specifically gasoline and distillates.
Fight A.L.S. is the third 83,000 bbl ATB tank barge recently designed by EBDG and built for Harley Marine Services, along with sister barges Dr. Robert J. Beall and Fight Fanoni Anemia. 
EBDG's scope for the project included the complete ABS design and approval package, as well as structural lofting and systems detail drawings, according to Project Manager Mike Complita. 
On project completion, Keith Barnes, Vice President of Marine Operations for Harley Marine Services, said, “We have enjoyed a long relationship with Elliott Bay Design Group and have had great success working with them on the new build designs and their complete customer service mission.”
Fight A.L.S. will pair with the tug Barry Silverton, named after Harley Marine Services’ board member Michael Silverton’s father who passed from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease), to form an articulated tug and barge (ATB) unit.
The Fight A.L.S. barge has a length of 422 ft, beam of 76 ft 8 in, and depth of 27 ft. The barge includes 12 separate cargo tanks and has the ability to pump cargo at 10,000 barrels per hour. A nitrogen-generating tank inerting system is onboard, and all pump and auxiliary engines meet Tier 3 standards.
