Based in Seattle, SeaTac Marine Services has acquired a new 300'x100' heavy deck cargo barge. Built in 2010, the SeaTac Atlas can haul up to 11,000 tons and with nearly 30,000 sq. ft. of deck space, is one of the larger barges in the Pacific cargo trade. The barge was purchased from Signet Marine in late 2020.
Specializing in general cargo and heavy lift machinery, the Atlas will fit well into SeaTac Marine’s regular shipping schedule to Anchorage and Seward, company officials said. SeaTac Marine is modifying the barge to maximize cargo protection and space.
“We are looking forward to increased opportunities and optimizing service for new and existing customers,” Walter Seay, SeaTac Marine’s president, said in a statement announcing the purchase.
Sited on its own 12-acre parcel along the Duwamish river, the terminal specializes in breakbulk cargo, lumber, heavy lift machinery, and bulk commodities.
