United States-based Jeffboat has recently delivered the tank
barge 'Endeavour' to its US owner, Andrie.
The 50,000-gross-barrel capacity barge is fitted with JAK
articulation socket plates, allowing it to be pushed from the stern
by the dedicated tug 'Karen Andrie'. While this means there are no
engines for propulsion on board the 'Endeavour', she is fitted out
for the specialised carrying of bitumen with Cummins QSM19
pump engines and Cummins GSM11-DM generators rated 250kW.
The Fulton Thermal FT-1400-C cargo system has a heating
capacity of 12.5 million BTU per hour, and includes an insulated
deck to help maintain temperature and nearly one thousand
metres of 6.5cm pipe.
The vessel has an overall length of 110 metres, a beam of 18
metres, a draught of about six metres and a depth of 7.3 metres.
The 2,285DWT vessel has a gross tonnage of 4,040 tonnes and a
net tonnage of 2,459 tonnes.
The vessel's Cummins SQK-19DM side thrusters are rated
at 600kW while its Omni Thruster HT 600 bow thruster is rated
On deck, 'Endeavour' is equipped with four Markey Marine
DESGM-18 electro-mechanical mooring winches and two anchor
windlasses, also from Markey Machinery. Other deck equipment
includes a Kaiser Service air compressor, a set of Quincy air
compressors and Warren BJ70 cargo pumps.
Departing the shipyard facilities at Jeffboat on May 6, the
ABS-classed 'Endeavour' stopped briefly in New Orleans on May
11. The barge arrived in Quebec City, Canada, on June 2 where it
was paired with the tug, 'Karen Andrie', for the first time. The new
unit then departed from Wharf 29 on June 4 on its maiden voyage
to Detroit, USA.
