Marine Builders Delivers to Waxler

Waxler Transportation Co. has taken delivery of the fourth in a series of five 3200 HP pushboats. The latest sister, the Angela Jean, was delivered to Secor’s inland transport subsidiary in July of this year.
Others in this series of 99 by 35-foot towboats are the Dylan Wexler, delivered in 2007, the McKenzie Waxler and the Cynthia G. Esper, delivered in 2008. The Angela Jean has now joined the growing Waxler fleet.  The Helen Merrill is scheduled for delivery in December of this year.
A pair of Cummins KTA50 M2 diesels individually rated for 1600 HP linked to Haley HRV Series gears provides main engine power for each of these vessels. Generators are a pair of 99 kW Cummins Onan.
