E.N. Bisso And Son Begins Long Distance Towing
E.N. Bisso and Son, Inc., long a fixture in towing, heavy lift and marine contracting at the Port of New Orleans, has branched into ocean towing.
The company announced that three of its powerful tugs, all cleared by the U.S. Coast Guard for offshore work, are available for rig towing, salvage, and long-distance barge towing "anywhere in the Western Hemisphere." This includes the Atlantic Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Mississippi River, according to Capt. Ralph Diaz, general manager.
Tugs available for long-distance assignments are the 4,200-hp J.A.
Bisso II, 3,600-hp A.T. Higgins, and the 2,400 C.D. White. The latter two vessels, recently acquired, are undergoing minor repairs and ABS inspection.
Acquisition of the two new tugs increases E.N. Bisso and Son's active fleet to 13. The company, wellknown in the Port of New Orleans since 1880, also operates derricks with capacities up to 100 tons.
