Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. was contracted by Metal Trades, Inc. of Hollywood, South Carolina to design two 14,000 BBL and seven 7,000 BBL double hull oil tank barges. Metal Trades key objective was to build a fuel barge that not only met the customer's requirements, but also provided the crew with robust operational features combined with ease of use. The barges are equipped with a robust AC generator, custom battery charging system, and radar Tank Level Indicator systems. Of importance to this project was the barge structure, including all interior nonstructural bulkheads, required to have a design service life of 40 years. The vessels are fully compliant with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, and carry D and E grade fuels. They are currently in service at U.S. Naval Fuel Depots.
