Bay building barges

Bay Shipbuilding Company (BSC) of the US has won a new contract to build barges for Moran Towing.

The Fincantieri-owned yard said the three articulated tug barges (ATBs) will carry oil and chemicals.

Two will have a 150,000-barrel capacity and one will transport 110,000 barrels, with horsepower of 6,000 and 5,300 respectively.

Delivery will take place over the next two years from its Sturgeon Bay facility.

No price was revealed.
