When the call came to Smith Maritime to haul a barge load of equipment on behalf of CAT5 Resources to rebuild cellular communication infrastructure in Puerto Rico, they jumped into action.

Smith Maritime loaded its barge Marilyn Monroe at their terminal in Amelia, Louisiana with vehicles, housing, bulk fuel, food and most importantly, self-powered cellular communication towers to re-establish communication on the island.

Marilyn Monroe was towed by the tug Elsbeth 2, powered by fully mechanical Mitsubishi engines rated 1675HP @1600RPM each. With their exceptional fuel economy and mechanical reliability, Mitsubishi engines are the perfect choice for your heavy duty marine engine needs.
