And–to repost a photo from April 2018–guess where Iron Salvor is today . . .

All photos by Will Van Dorp, whose curt post today are dictated by a tank low on verbiage today because my reserves are being used on other projects .  ..

Iron Salvor, the one above, is currently in Malta, that English-speaking island in the Med!!

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.

 

Do you recognize this ship?

Well, actually, Petroleum Producer is a barge, not a ship.  And Galveston is a 12,000 hp tug.

And in port she needs assistance . . . here Freddy K Miller (I think . . . on starboard) and Pegasus.

This generation of ATB units replaces ITBs that were still in the sixth boro when tugster started to pay attention back in 2006.  Back then, there was a fleet of ITBs, now waiting the scrapyard.  Click here and here for closeups I did of one of them, ITB Philadelphia, last known to be laid up in Great Bitter Lake in Egypt.  Anyone have followup news?

The last time I caught closeups of Petroleum Producer and Galveston it was here (scroll through) in the Cape Fear River over two years ago.
