Biggest bunkering barge being built in your backyard

The Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding has started construction on a Liquefied Natural Gas bunkering barge that is expected to be the biggest one ever constructed in the United States. The project was announced in September, but construction is just getting underway. Construction is expected to be completed under contract with Crowley, who is the largest independent operator of tank vessels in the United States. The vessel will be 416 feet and will have the capacity for a little over 3 million gallons of Liquefied Natural Gas. The vessel is expected to serve its purpose of better energy sources for ships on the east coast around 2024.
