The GLOBAL PROVIDER, Maxum Petroleum's newest vessel is currently under construction at Jesse Co. in Tacoma, Washington and expected to enter service in January 2017.

Scott Prince, CEO of Maxum Petroleum said “The launch of this vessel demonstrates our continued commitment to enhance our service capabilities for our customers throughout the West Coast and Pacific Northwest.”

“The GLOBAL PROVIDER is the result of years of collaboration between our Maxum Team, our valued customers, Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) and Jesse Engineering to develop a tank-ship with the versatility and capacity to enhance our commitment to quality, customer service and our on-going dedication to providing fuel, lubricants and related services to meet the mission critical needs of our valued clients,” says Dan Kovacich, VP of Maxum Petroleum.

EBDG's scope for the project included concept and contract design, regulatory support and detail design. The EBDG Team is working closely with Jesse Engineering, the Washington based fabricator selected to undertake the build for this project. EBDG Project Manager, James Jennings is “proud of the results of our work with Maxum and Jesse Engineering designing such a capable vessel to support the Puget Sound Maritime Community.”
