Senesco Marine has built and delivered another EPA Tier 4 compliant ATB tug, the Janice Ann Reinauer, to Staten Island, N.Y.-based tug-and-barge operator Reinauer Transportation.
The 4,200-hp tug was designed by Ocean Tug & Barge in cooperation with Reinauer. It is the 13th tug Senesco has built for Reinauer. The tug is designed to operate as part of an articulated tug-barge unit with an Intercon coupling system.
The Janice Ann Reinauer is ABS classed, A1, Towing Vessel, AMS, certified to USCG Sub-Chapter M requirements and is fully SOLAS and ISM compliant.
Main propulsion comes from two GE 6L250, Tier 4 diesel engines connected to Nautican integrated Propulsion Units including high efficiency nozzles, triple rudders, pre-swirl stators and propellers through Lufkin reduction gears.
The electrical power plant consists of John Deere powered ship’s service generators including an emergency backup generator.
The Janice Ann Reinauer has been outfitted with spacious accommodations, galley, mess and working areas. Upon delivery, the tug went directly to work transporting product on the U.S East and Gulf coasts.
