Arctic Directory: Crowley begins ocean class tug program

Crowley said Feb. 16 that it has signed a contract with Bollinger Shipyards to build two newly designed ocean-going tugboats, with options for additional vessels.

The 10,880-horsepower tugs are the beginning of a new-build program at Crowley to further enhance its ocean towing, salvage and offshore support capabilities. Crowley said the new tugs will be ideally suited to work with Crowley’s new 455 series heavy lift deck barges, which measure 400 feet by 105 feet and offer increased stability for load up to 4,200 pounds per-square-foot.

Additionally, the tugs will be outfitted for, and capable of, rig moves, platform and floating production, storage and offloading unit tows, emergency response and firefighting.

The new tugs will be designated the Ocean Class, with the first two named Ocean Wave and Ocean Wind.
