SENESCO Announces

Largest Contract To Date

The Southeastern New England Ship- building Corporation (SENESCO), has signed its largest barge contract to date to build a 332 x 74-ft. (101.1 x 22.5-m) double-hulled liquid fuel barge. The contract, which is valued is in excess of $7 million, creates an immediate open- ing for 20 new employees, a move that will increase SENESCO's workforce to just under 200 employees. The contract comes with options for two additional barges that, if exercised, will ensure full employment at SENESCO for the next two years.

Construction of the ABS-Classed,

Ocean Service double-hull tank barge will begin immediately and it is expect- ed to be delivered by November 2002.

The barge, with a capacity in excess of 80,000 barrels, will be built primarily for oil service in the Southern U.S. and will comply with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) requirements.
