Marstel terminals – bunker barge tow

In August 2009 we took on a tow project of a 72mtr bunker barge from Tahiti to Auckland.
This involved preparing the barge for the tow in Tahiti, we spent about a week cleaning the weed from the barges bottom, re securing all ballast tank inspection plates, removing the barges fenders, changing the water ballast and rigging all the tow arrangement including Nav lights and day shapes.

After completing the tow survey we were underway for the 20 odd day voyage back to Auckland, stopping twice to change the barges ballast water mid ocean.
