Norshipco To Complete

Ocean Barge For CCT

The U.S. Maritime Administra- tion and Seatrain Shipbuilding

Corporation have arranged for

Norfolk Shipbuilding and Dry- dock Corporation, Norfolk, Va., to complete the barge portion of an oceangoing tug-barge unit that is scheduled to be placed in service this fall by Coordinated Carib- bean Transport, Inc. (CCT), a sub- sidiary of Transway International


Total cost to CCT, payable on delivery, is $11,882,000. CCT plans to place the tug-barge unit in service between Miami, Fla., and

Ecuador, operating under the U.S. flag.

Seatrain had been building two of the tug-barge units under con- struction differential subsidy from

MarAd when the shipyard ceased shipbuilding activities in May 1979. By that time, CCT had taken delivery of both tugs from

Marinette Marine Corporation, which built them under subcon- tract from Seatrain.

As part of the arrangement,

CCT sold one of the tugs to Sea- train at cost, and was relieved of its obligation to take delivery of the other barge.

The barge being completed by

Norshipco will have four cargo decks for roll-on/roll-off service, [maw ji
