Maxum Petroleum has taken delivery of its newest vessel, the Global Provider, which will be used to deliver marine fuel and lubricants to ship operators in the Pacific Northwest.

The 126-foot-long Global Provider is a self-propelled bunker vessel with a storage capacity of 151,500 gallons, equipped with a cargo handling system featuring six pairs of cargo tanks. It is designed to move segregated products in a single trip, without cross-contamination.

The vessel is powered by two Cummins QSK-19M, 660 HP Tier III engines and features Twin Disc MGX-5202 reduction gears that drive two fixed-pitch propellers.

Deck gear includes a 2,800-pound Rapp Marine hose-handling crane that can also be used for skiff and boom deployment or to assist in skimming operations.

The vessel includes the capability for emergency and oil spill response, and can be used as floating storage during skimming and recovery.

The Global Provider was designed by Elliott Bay Design Group and built by Jesse Engineering.

Just over a year ago, Maxum also introduced the Global Pilot double-hull tank barge, which is longer than the Global Provider at 219 feet.

The Global Pilot has a marine gas oil (MGO) capacity of 630,000 US gallons, in eight tanks; and a lubricant capacity of 14,000 US gallons in deck-mounted ISO tanks, with four segregations of 3,500 US gallons each. The vessel is said to have a maximum lubricant pumping rate of 130 gallons per minute.
