Seen on the River: M/V Nova H Louis
Posted on Jul 16th, 2016

 
The towboat M/V Nova H. Louis was seen recently pushing barges to and from the Phillips 66 terminal facility on the San Bernard, located a mile and a half downstream from the FM 522 Black Ferry Bridge.
 
The towboat is owned by the American Commercial Barge Line, Jefferson, Indiana. The company began in 1915 as a coal moving business on the Kentucky River and now has a fleet of 4,800 barges powered by 200 towboats. 
 
A two-letter river code system is used by the barge transportation industry to identify rivers, canals and river segments including the mile marker number for location on the waterway…so, the river code for the "FOR World Headquarters" would be SB15.
