Arctic Directory: Crowley launches newest barge in Portland

Crowley said March 31 that its newest heavy-lift series deck barge, the 455-4, was christened and launched at the Gunderson Marine Shipyard in Portland, Ore. The 400-foot-long, 105-foot-wide, barge was christened by Carey Graham, wife of Parker Drilling Vice President Dennis Graham.

Crowley has plans to build up to 13 of these high-capacity barges by 2013. The largest, already in operation in the U.S. Gulf, measures 400 feet by 130 feet. Crowley’s heavy-lift 455 series deck barges with 25-foot side shells provide both the capacity and deck strength needed to accommodate larger drilling and production units used for deepwater offshore energy exploration and development.
