Second Module Shipment Departs Without a Hitch

The second voyage to deliver Cianbro modules to the Motiva refinery expansion project in Texas is underway.  Friday morning, crews worked beneath a steady drizzle at the Eastern Manufacturing Facility bulkhead in Brewer, Maine, to prepare the four modules for the 2,300 mile barge journey.  Crew members aboard the ocean going tug, Emma Foss, secured lines to the barge and slid out into the middle of the Penobscot River practically "on the dot" at 11:30 a.m. as scheduled.  TV crews joined amateur photographers along the shoreline to capture some pictures of the departure.  Foss Maritime Regional Manager Bob Manning said that only a drop in visibility or a strengthening wind would hinder the departure.  Neither condition was a problem, despite the rain, and so the castoff took place without a hitch.  The voyage is expected to take less time than the first voyage back in March, which lasted 26 days.  Stormy weather, which forced the Emma Foss to put into port with her cargo several times during the last journey, is not expected to be as significant a problem this time around.
