New Chemical Parcel Barging Service Offered In Port Of N e w York

Chemical parcel barging is now being offered within the Port of New York, according to a recent announcement from Stolt-Nielsen Inc. of Greenwich, Conn., who will be the marketing agent for the new service on behalf of the owners, Maryland Marine, Inc. Said to be a "first" for the port, the service will permit the intraharbor shipment or ship lighterage of small lots, or parcels of bulk liquid chemicals and related products. The barge will be operated by Manhattan Oil Transportation of New York, Inc.

The double-skinned, fully segregated chemical parcel barge MMI 301 will be available for service throughout the New York Port area, Long Island Sound, as far east as Boston, and on the Hudson River north to Albany. The barge has six independent, zinc-coated cargo tanks with external heating channels, six Framo stainless steel deepwell cargo pumps, and all stainless steel cargo lines, enabling it to carry six completely segregated cargoes at the same time. The MMI 301 has a capacity of 18,285 barrels, and can carry 1,968 metric tons of IMO II cargo on a line-foot draft, or 2,583 metric tons of IMO III cargo on a draft of 11 feet.

This new barge service draws upon 25 years of worldwide experience in the transportation and storage of specialty bulk liquids, and Manhattan Oil's many years of operating experience in New York Harbor. Stolt-Nielsen owns Stolt Terminals (Perth Amboy) Inc., which provides waterfront public storage for bulk liquid chemicals, vegetable oils, petroleum products, and dry bulk products for New York area shippers and receivers.
