Fuel Bunker Barges
THREE bunker barges have been designed to date, the
first being the Pentow Energy, which was designed from scratch to
Bureau Veritas Class, and built by Dorbyl Marine in Cape Town, for
SMIT Harbour and Towage.
The second being the Smit Dudula, for the same client,
but this time as a conversion from a dumb barge, by the name of Winbuild.
A third double skin bunker barge has been
designed for SMIT INTERNATIONAL, constructed by DORMAC in Durban,
and launched on the 29th Nov 2007.
Subsequent to that the SMIT ENERGY (previously
called Pentow Energy, also originally designed by Triton) was double
skinned in Durban by Dormac.
The third SMIT Bunker Barge, DUDULA, being
the last in line for double skinning, due for completion in 2009.
