When bigger barges are built,

Wiley will build them.

A case in point: Pittston Marine's new tank barge, a floating oil field over 315 feet long was recently built by

Wiley. Designed for manned coastwise service or unmanned ocean service, the "Rockland" carries up to 70,000 barrels of Grade A petroleum products and lower, with approximately 3.4 miles of heating coils for hot oil.

Deep well pumps are on the deck, with drive engines in an all- weather enclosure. A recessed house for quarters and galley is heated and air-conditioned.

The "Rockland" is the latest in the Wiley built deck, tank, dump, crane and coal barges; clamshell dredges; tugs and towboats; tankers, passenger and fishing vessels. With

Wiley's broad marine capabilities, we can custom-build to your specifications.
