CITB readies for Alaska’s ice-free season

Cook Inlet Tug & Barge (CITB), a subsidiary of Foss Maritime Company, has announced that the 2019 ice-free season on Alaska’s North Slope are under way.

Three recently acquired tugs, along with barges and shore equipment, will be operating out of Prudhoe Bay for the next three months, weather permitting.

Jeff Johnson, president of CITB, said: “These shallow-draught tugs and barges are ideally suited for work on the North Slope waterways and the Western Alaska markets.”

The three tugs include the Sag Wind, the Kuparuk Wind, and the Kavik Wind, each of which are 64 ft (19.5 m) long, 27 ft (8.2 m) wide, and with a draught of only 3.4 ft (1 m).

The vessels will support the oil and gas industry as well as construction activities on the North Slope.
