Bouchard ATB on schedule for 2019 delivery
Construction is underway for an articulated tug barge being built by VT Halter Marine and Bollinger Shipyards for Bouchard Transportation.
Bollinger Shipyards is building the barge component, a 96.77- by 21-metre, double-hull tank barge with a 55,000-barrel capacity.
VT Halter Marine is building the tug component of Evening Breeze.
Evening Breeze’s rudder tubes were finished and welded last week and the Intercon tow winch was set into position on the main deck.
The majority of the hull’s steel is fit, and it was moved into the outfitting position next to the dock where it will later be launched.
The ATB is expected to be delivered in 2019.
