City State Zip-

First of 14 new chemical barges for PPG slides down the ways recently at the

Hillman Barge and Construction Company yard in Brownsville, Pa.

PPG Industries has begun the launching of 14 new Hillman chemical barges, customed de- signed to carry caustic soda ship- ments from PPG's expanded plant in Lake Charles, La. The first barge was launched recently, and all the remaining vessels are scheduled for delivery before the end of this year.

Hillman Barge & Construction

Company of Brownsville, Pa., de- signed and built the barges to specifications prepared by the

PPG marine engineers. Hillman worked closely with PPG, making modifications to meet the compa- ny's product needs and design specifications.

The double-skin barges are of single tank design with swash bulkheads for stability during towing. Each of the 195-foot by 35-foot by 12-foot barges will hold 1,500 tons of 50-percent caustic soda solution. Other fea- tures include double continuous full penetration welding, external heating channels for all-weather operation, and stern flooding pro- visions for unloading and trim- ming.

Approved and inspected by the

American Bureau of Shipping and the United States Coast Guard, the Type II hull barges are classed for river, bay and sound service.

Upon completion by Hillman in

Brownsville, each barge will be lined and insulated with PPG

Columbia #7 lining at Busch &

Latta Marine Coating, St. Louis,


Hillman Barge & Construction

Company, a major inland ship- yard, manufactures custom-de- signed barges, each modified and constructed to customer specifi- cations. Robert Kenny, president of Hillman Barge, said: "Hillman is oriented toward custom barges, each individually designed and constructed to handle either spe- cialty materials or different ap- plications and situations. This flexibility of design and construc- tion permits modifications to meet the customer's specific operating requirements. "Hillman barges have a reputa- tion for sturdiness," Mr. Kenny added. "For instance, strategic areas are beefed-up with addi- tional steel reinforcement to pro- vide longer life and less mainte- nance when the barges are used in larger tows with larger horse- power boats. The value of equip- ment after 10 years is as import- ant as the initial purchase price to today's sophisticated operators.

Therefore, the added values of rugged construction today are weil worth the investment." Mr.

Kenny said: "Our philosophy is offer value. This value can be seen in the number of rake and stern trusses, corner construction, the size and number of steel members, as well as the detail, fitting, and welding of each com- ponent in a Hillman barge."

According to Mr. Kenny, Hill- man has set a ceiling at 500 em- ployees. "This has resulted in a stable workforce," Mr. Kenny said, "with an average of 9 years of marine service. Supplementing this experience, is our constant program of education, testing and upgrading for all personnel.

This is essential to the construc- tion of custom application barges, particularly the more sophisti- cated tank barges Hillman is called upon to construct."

Besides chemical barges, Hill- man also produces standard and jumbo coal barges, grain, cement, sand, and gravel barges, floats, and other specialty-type marine equipment.

The purchasers and operators of the most recent Hillman barge feet, PPG Industries, is one of the largest producers of chlorine and caustic soda. Its expanded

Lake Charles plant, which the barges were designed in conjunc- tion with, is scheduled to come on-stream in mid-1980, adding a capacity of 300,000 tons of caus- tic soda annually. 21
