Here are the previous iterations of this type.

This morning photo sets it up.  Bert Reinauer passes Galveston as another sun rises.

Bert, launched in 2018 is 118′ x 40′ and mated to RTC 165, a 150k bbl barge.

She’s powered by a GE 8400hp Tier IV set of mains.

Galveston, 144′ x 46′ and seen here two hours past dawn, was launched in 2008, and mated to Petrochem Producer, a 156k bbl barge and powered by a set of Wartsila 9L32 mains generating 12,000 hp.

Pacific Reliance, 122′ x 42′ and launched in 2006, generates 9280 hp from a set of Cat 3612s.  She’s mated to 650-1 with capacity of 178k bbl, I believe.

All photos recently by Will Van Dorp, who hopes his sources are and have been transcribed accurately.

A previous Galveston post can be seen here, and a previous Pacific Reliance here.
