Crowley Fuels LLC has taken delivery of its new Alaska Class 100,000-barrel capacity articulated tug-barge (ATB) from Bollinger Shipyards with the 483-foot vessel to be operated for Alaska-based Petro Star, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC), under long-term charter.

Designed by Jensen Maritime, Crowley’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering subsidiary, the pushtug Aveogan makes use of GE 8L250 main engines meeting Tier 4 emissions standards while the double-hulled tank barge Oliver Leavitt is outfitted with spill response gear and a hydraulic boom reel with 2,000 linear feet of inflatable boom.
