US-based Maxum Petroleum has taken delivery of Global Provider, a self-propelled bunker ship designed by Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) of Seattle and built by Jesse Co Metal Fabrication and Machinery of Tacoma.
The vessel will be used to deliver fuel and lube oil to ship operators in the Pacific Northwest.
