Overseas Shipholding Group (OSG) announced that it has received delivery of the OSG 205, a 204,000 barrel capacity oil and chemical tank barge for dual mode ITB service pursuant to U.S. Coast Guard NVIC 2-81, Change 1. The barge was built by Greenbrier Marine, a division of The Greenbrier Companies (GBX), in compliance MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 13 Tier III standards regarding nitrogen oxide emissions within emission control areas. This is the second tank barge that Greenbrier Marine has delivered to OSG this year, after delivering its sister barge OSG 204 in May 2020. OSG 204 and 205 are among the largest barges Greenbrier Marine has built, at 581 feet each. The OSG 205 has been paired with an existing tug within the OSG fleet, the OSG Courageous, and the paired unit will enter into a one year time charter with a long time customer of OSG shortly after delivery from Greenbrier Marine.
