Ingram brings two new vessels into fleet

Ceremony brought two new towboats into Ingram fleet

Posted on June 8, 2021

Ingram Marine Group, along with Cenac Marine Services, Main Iron Works and other stakeholders, this week held a ceremony christening the M/V Adrienne M. Moore and honoring the M/V Tom Cornwell.

Both vessels are named after long-time Ingram Marine associates.

Adrienne Moore currently serves as AVP, Logistics and Customer Service. She has approximately 30 years of service, distinguishing herself both as a service provider and as a valuable mentor to her direct reports and the broader logistics team.

Tom Cornwell serves as Ingram Marine’s Engineering Projects Manager, overseeing the construction of new vessels. He joined Ingram Marine in 1977 and has served in a number of different capacities over the years.

The sister vessels are the latest additions to the Ingram fleet and are also the first of 10 new vessels that Cenac Marine and Main Iron Works are under contract to build for Ingram Marine (see more on that below).

Specifications are as follows:
