ABS to class LNG bunker barge

The Houston-based classification society ABS informed it has been selected to class an LNG bunker barge under construction at Conrad Orange Shipyard for WesPac Midstream and Clean Marine Energy.

The 2,200 cu m barge is scheduled for delivery in mid-2016 and will initially be deployed in Tacoma, Wash., to service shipowner Totem Ocean Trailer Express’s Orca Class ro-ro vessels.

The unit will then be relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., to serve parent company TOTE’s Marlin Class dual-fuel container vessels and other LNG-powered vessels in the Port of Jacksonville.

Designed by Bristol Harbor Group, the barge features a single tank equipped with the Mark III Flex cargo containment system supplied by GTT North America, ABS said in a statement issued late Friday.

WesPac/CME plans to exercise its options with Conrad to construct additional LNG bunker barges to serve other North American ports, the statement added.
