Arctic Directory: Crowley ATB is largest to transit Alaska waters

Crowley Maritime Corp. said Dec. 15 that its petroleum transportation group recently made history, as its 155,000-barrel Articulated Tug Barge, Sea Reliance/550-1, became the largest of its kind to have ever have transited Alaska waters. Under the watchful command of Capt. Scott Murdock, the ATB completed a voyage from Martinez, Calif., to Anchorage carrying a full load of jet fuel. The journey, which occurred without incident, was met with several weather concerns because of an early start to the winter storm season. Although other small cargo ATBs have traveled in Alaska, nothing has rivaled the size of the Sea Reliance/550-1, which measures over 600 feet in length. For more information visit www.crowley.com.
