Articulated Tug and Barge Units

Vane Brothers operates two articulated tug and barge units (AT/B) that rise more than seven stories high when floating light. The 6,000-horsepower tugs and 140,000-barrel tank barges were built specifically to serve our coastwide customer base in transporting petroleum products from New England to the Gulf of Mexico.
