NABRICO To Build Four Chemical Barges For Maryland Marine

Maryland Marine, Inc., Houston, Texas, recently contracted Nashville Bridge Company (NABRICO), Nashville, Tenn., to build four 30,000-barrel double-skin tank barges.

According to Caroll Bjornson, owner of MMI, the 297-1/2-foot barges will be built to Coast Guard Type II standards and will be equipped with the latest technology in closed gauging, high level alarms, spill valves, sight glasses and liquid level indicators.

The barges will be chartered to Stolt Transportation Service under a long term agreement for use in the petrochemical trade along the Gulf Coast.

The new barges, scheduled for delivery beginning May 1,1991, will bring the MMI fleet to 32 units, all double skin.
