Vigor recently launched The Harvest, the first complex liquefied ammonia transport barge built in the United States for Jones Act trade since 1982. The vessel was constructed to support the operations of The Mosaic Company, the world’s leading integrated producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash. The Harvest will be operated by a subsidiary of Savage Companies as part of an articulated tug and barge (ATB) unit. Over the last 23 months, the project supported approximately 1,500 American jobs and involved close to a million labor hours at Vigor shipyards in Oregon and Washington and subcontractors throughout the region. Teams used 9,000 tons of American rolled steel to complete the 508 ft x 96 ft ATB tank barge.
