Arctic Directory: Crowley takes delivery of 10th articulated tug barge

Crowley said April 2 that it has taken delivery of its newest articulated tug barge. The tug, Commitment, and barge 650-6 were delivered to Pascagoula, Miss. The 185,000-barrel ATB, 10th in Crowley’s fleet, has been chartered by a major energy company to transport petroleum products on the U.S. West Coast beginning in April.

“New vessel design, construction and deployment are essential to serving the needs of our customers,” said Tom Crowley, company chairman, president and CEO. “We are committed to designing, building and operating the most technologically advanced and environmentally sound vessels in the industry.”

Crowley ATBs are the newest and most environmentally friendly vessels in the company’s fleet and are also designed to reduce immediate environmental effects such as emissions and wastewater. The Crowley ATB fleet is scheduled to grow to 17 by mid-2013. For more information visit www.crowley.com.
