Articulated Tug and Barge Units

Vane Brothers operates seven articulated tug and barge units (AT/B's) that rise more than seven stories high when floating light. The AT/B tugs range up to 6,000 horsepower, and the largest of the AT/B barges can carry a 140,000-barrel-equivalent load. The tugs and barges can be joined by an advanced coupling system.
