NABRICO Delivers Two Asphalt
Barges To National Marine Service
Two 297-foot double-skin rake tank barges specifically designed for asphalt service by Nashville
Bridge Company (NABRICO) have been delivered to National
Marine Service, Inc. of St. Louis.
Each barge has a total capacity of approximately 29,000 barrels or 1,218,000 gallons.
For asphalt service, a barge must be heated at a constant tem- perature in order to keep the as- phalt fluid. This heat is supplied by a volcanic heater and is trans- mitted by way of heating oil through a hot oil piping system.
The asphalt is unloaded by way of a Sier Bath pump at a rate of 2,800 gallons per minute. The to- tal off-loading time is approxi- mately 71/2 hours for each barge.
The barges are certified by the
United States Coast Guard for the carriage of Grade "A" or low- er products. They are provided with American Bureau of Ship- ping classification A-l Tank
Barge, River Service and loadline for unmanned voyages between
Chicago and Michigan City, Ind., and between Carrabelle, Fla., and
St. Marks, Fla.
