Tetra Hedron, BFC!

Another “great boat” that isn’t really a boat and does offshore heavy lift. This is the derrick barge “Tetra Hedron” and it can lift a mere 1600 metric tons. Got this picture as we turned into slip a flotation, though I could see this beast from all the way at the end of the haliburton slip.

Can anyone guess what what the BFC in the title stands for?
