. . . Lama Don A . . . ?  well, of course it’s La Madonna, but when I heard the on the VHF, my first thought was what I put as title.

She’s part of the LA International fleet and following in the wake of Sarah Dann, delivering more modules for the Shell ethane cracker in Potter township Pennsylvania by way of the GOM, Mississippi, and a long way up the Ohio.  The Shell plant employs 5000 people and will cost an estimated $6 billion to construct.  More on ethane here.

As of this posting, Sarah Dann, towing another module,  is mid-Gulf of Mexico.

La Madonna is a 6000 hp tug, 112′ x 32′.

 

This module was assembled in Brewer, Maine.
