Island Tug and Barge Ltd., of Vancouver, B.C, Canada, have sold their special purpose, combo deck/tank barge “ITB-5” to City Services Ltd. of Freeport, Bahamas. 

The 161.4′ x 47.9′ x 10.9′ barge was built in 1979 at McKenzie Barge & Marine Ltd. in North Vancouver, British Columbia. She is Transport Canada Classed “A” Oil barge for cargoes with flash points below 60 deg C. “ITB-5” was designed and certified to  carry both bulk oil and deck cargoes, with a below deck capacity of 10,000BBL in 10 cargo tanks. The barge is fitted with three independent discharge systems, three 550BPH Paramount centrifugal cargo pumps, hydraulic hose reels and closed loading and vapour recovery with a common vent/overfill system. With her internal piping,  reinforced wood sheathed cargo deck, large hydraulic bow ramp and stern winches she is also very suitable for carrying rolling stock and miscellaneous deck cargoes.

ITB-5” has worked most all of her life trading between Vancouver and the coastal communities throughout British Columbia, Canada.

This is the third transaction that Marcon International, Inc. has helped broker for the Seller over the years and the second sale to the Buyer in the last year.

The barge was just loaded onto the heavy lift ship “Super Servant 3” in Vancouver for delivery via the Panama Canal to Florida where she will be discharged. She will then be towed to her new home in the Bahamas. Marcon acted as sole broker in the transaction.

Marcon International Inc. has brokered the following thirteen sales and charters to-date in 2011. Several additional sales are pending and expected to close within the next 30 days.
