Double-Hull Oil Barge
Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. (BHGI) was contracted by Orange Shipbuilding, a division of Conrad Industries, Inc. to design a 290’ x 62’ x 18.5’, 35,000 BBL double hull oil barge. The barge is similar to several previous BHGI designs. The STATIA VICTORY incorporates numerous modifications to piping systems, deck layout, mooring and fendering arrangements to suite owner-specific needs for bunkering and lightering processes. She is equipped with separate cargo pumps and piping to provide for carriage of diesel oil up to approximately 40% of her total cargo capacity. She is outfitted to include on-deck carriage of lubricating oil in bulk, including transfer pump capabilities. The barge is also equipped with closed gauging and a high level/overfill alarm system and is outfitted with a closed vapor collection system for connection to a shore-side facility for processing of cargo vapors during transfer operations.
