Robert Allan Ltd. has been awarded a contract by Rio Maguari Shipyard (Estaleiro Rio Maguari – ERM), located in Belém, Brazil, to develop the design package for an innovative Articulated Tug and Barge (ATB) for shipping containers along the coast of Brazil. These two ATB convoys will be owned and operated by Aliança Navegação e Logística (ANL), a major logistics services provider in Latin America, and part of the Maersk Group. Each barge will measure 130.0 m by 28.0 m, by 8.0 m depth, and will be able to carry approximately 700 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit), including dangerous goods and reefer containers, distributed above and below deck.
