PASCAGOULA — VT Halter Marine has gotten a contract to build an articulated tug barge for Bouchard Transportation Co.

The contract includes an option for a second tug. Halter Marine officials say the option must be exercised within 60 days of the initial contract award.

Halter Marine CEO Bill Skinner says in a news release that the barge has a 250,000-barrel capacity and will be used to transport liquid petroleum.

Construction will begin in April at VT Halter Marine’s Pascagoula facility, with delivery scheduled for mid-2015.

The barge will enter into Bouchard’s fleet service in New York.
