       意大利船厂Fincantieri在美国的附属公司Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding向VanEnkevort Tug & Barge(VTB)航运公司交付了一艘新建自卸驳船以在五大湖运作。
 
       该艘名为“Michigan Trader”号的新驳船长740英尺,宽78英尺,深45英尺。此船有一个265英尺长的卸载臂,可装载37000长吨货物。
 
       VTB公司总裁David Groh表示,“Michigan Trader”号将是该公司五大湖区船队中的第四艘自卸式驳船。这艘驳船将是VTB船队中的第10艘,将在五大湖、密西西比河和墨西哥湾服役。
 
       Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding公司的副总裁兼总经理Todd Thayse指出,公司在威斯康星州斯特金湾(Sturgeon Bay, Wis)一直为VTB提供维修服务,并为其第一艘新拖船“Joyce VanEnkevort”号建造了船体。
 
       Groh表示:“Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding公司为我们提供多年的优质维修服务。我们很高兴能与他们合作开发这艘新船,也很高兴能支持五大湖地区及其产业。我们不断增长的客户群支持了我们的愿景,而我们也用这艘新建驳船做出了回应。”
 
       该项目利用了来自美国中西部供应商的材料和零部件,其供应链包括当地供应商,如威斯康星州马尼托瓦克的Broadwind Heavy Industries公司,为“Michigan Trader”号制造了265英尺长的吊杆。Northern Machine & Repair Inc.提供舱口盖,位于威斯康星州斯特金湾的Marine Travel Lift制造了货物舱口起重机。
 
       Thayse说:“我们很高兴在COVID-19战疫时期支持了五大湖经济,从吊杆到舱口起重机,以及两者之间的一切,这艘船展示了威斯康星州和中西部制造业以及我们Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding员工的伟大。”

Bay Shipbuilding Delivers Self-unloading Barge to VTB
 
Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding has delivered a newly built self-unloading barge to VanEnkevort Tug & Barge for operation on the Great Lakes.
 
The new barge, named Michigan Trader, measures 740 feet in length, 78 feet in beam, and 45 feet in depth. The barge has a 265-foot unloading boom and capacity for up to 37,000 long tons of cargo.
 
David Groh, president of VanEnkevort Tug & Barge, said Michigan Trader will be the fourth self-unloading barge in the company's Great Lakes fleet. The barge will be the 10th in the VTB fleet, with services on the Great Lakes, Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico.
 
Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding’s vice president and general manager, Todd Thayse, noted that the Sturgeon Bay, Wis. has always provided repair services to VTB and built the hull for its first new tug the Joyce VanEnkevort.
 
“The repair work that Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding has completed for us over the years has been good,” Groh said. “We are happy to have partnered with them for this new vessel and are thrilled to support the Great Lakes region and its industry. Our growing customer base has supported our vision and we have responded with this newbuild barge.”
 
Utilizing materials and parts from suppliers across the Midwest, the project’s supply chain includes local suppliers such as Broadwind Heavy Industries of Manitowoc, Wis. which built the Michigan Trader’s 265-foot boom. Northern Machine & Repair Inc. provided its hatch covers, and Marine Travel Lift in Sturgeon Bay, Wis. manufactured the cargo hatch crane along with many more local parts and services.
 
“We are happy to have supported the Great Lakes economy during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.” Thayse said. “From boom to hatch crane, and everything in between, this vessel shows the greatness of Wisconsin and Midwest manufacturing and our Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding employees.”
