Vessel Management

  • Crowley Maritime's Vessel Management Services, Inc., christened the first of four Articulated Tug-Barge (ATB) tank vessels on April 25 in New Orleans — the 9,280- hp tug Sea Reliance and the 155,000-barrel barge 550-1.

    Intrepid Ship Management, a subsidiary of Marine Transport Lines, will charter the Halter Marine-built ATB from Vessel Management Services and operate it. Marine Transport is a Crowley subsidiary and part of its Contract services segment.

    The ATB tank vessel was jointly designed by Vessel Management Services and Halter Marine to incorporate the latest advances in environmental and safety while addressing increased efficiencies in hose handling, anchoring, mooring, discharge and loading of product. The barge 550-1 was built at Halter's Port Bienville shipyard in Pearlington, Miss., and the Sea Reliance at its Moss Point Marine shipyard, in Escatawpa, Miss.

    The 550-1 is double hulled and the tug is double sided for maximum environmental protection and safety. The barge, built, documented and maintained to the requirements of American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) SafeHull, has an inert gas system as well as an enhanced cargo system and a fully redundant ballast system.
