- BOA Tugs' customer needed the barge in connection with loading equipment, and it was urgent. We threw ourselves around and took on the task of towing it from Brevik to Stavanger, says Leif Steinar Simonsen, operations manager at FFS.

BOA Barge 21 is 92 meters long and 31.5 meters wide, and has a loading capacity of 11,000 tonnes. The barge belongs to BOA Tugs, a subsidiary of BOA Shipping owned by Ole T. Bjørnevik and his family.
