Liquefied gas barge delivered in United States

The ATB Harvest was recently delivered

The Harvest, an articulated tug barge (ATB) classed by ABS, will transport up to 22,000 tonnes of anhydrous ammonia, an ingredient in phosphate-based fertiliser, for Tampa Port Services LLC, a subsidiary of The Mosaic Company, a producer of concentrated phosphate and potash.  
“The delivery of this ATB represents a landmark achievement for all of the project stakeholders as well as the US shipbuilding industry,” said ABS Americas Division President Jamie Smith. “The first-of-its-kind in over three decades, the Harvest will help reshape the US fleet and support safer trading in US waters.”
Construction of the ATB took 23 months, supported about 1,500 American jobs and involved close to one million labour hours at Vigor facilities in Oregon and Washington as well as subcontractors throughout the region.

The first liquefied ammonia transport barge to be built in the US for Jones Act trade since 1982 has been delivered by the Vigor group.
