Tennessee Valley Authority gets new towboat
TENNESSEE (KFVS) - The Tennessee Valley Authority got a new state-of-the-art towboat for moving heavy equipment up and down the Tennessee River.
According to a Facebook post by the TVA, the tier 4 towboat took nearly two years to design. They say the towboat is a first for any government agency and the first build of this class for the shipyard that makes them.
The vessel will replace the TVA’s older towboat from 1985.
