Anchorage, AK  –  May 4, 2021  –  Vitus has expanded its fleet with the addition of the barge CUANEQ.  The 200,000 gallon barge was built in 2011 by North Star Gas (NSG) for shallow draft service in Western Alaska.  NSG is an organization of 18 Western Alaska entities to provide consolidated buying power for a number of different goods.  As part of the deal Vitus’s relationship as a fuel provider for NSG was extended to 2031.  The additional barge will supplement Vitus’s existing barge fleet.
