Crane barge order for VT Halter Marine
VT Halter Marine Inc. (VT Halter Marine) has secured a US$5.2 million contract to build a stevedoring crane barge for Tide Leasing Company, L.L.C., of Birmingham, Alabama.
A VT Halter Marine facility delivered a similar crane barge to Tide Leasing/Drummond Ltd in 2000 and the new vessel is an indication of the continuing relationship between the companies.
VT Halter Marine CEO Boyd King said the barge project "contains all the elements that are necessary to produce a solid, high quality products: a proven design, experienced craftsmen and a history of delivering vessels that are tailored to meet the requirements of each customer."
