Controlled Depth Submerged Barge 720562

This paper describes a concept for hauling cargo in a towed vessel at controlled depths beneath the ocean surface. A system is proposed for hauling crude oil from the North Slope of Alaska through the Northwest Passage and to the East Coast of the U.S. Specifications for a 189,000 SHP ice breaking tug and a 250,000 ton barge with necessary controls are detailed. The application of this towed underwater barge concept to other transportation is presented.
