FURTHER, OWNERS COMMENT:

 

The pushing arrangement will work on any square stern barge and is modelled after the pushing beams on large Mississippi pushers. Works well, gives good manoeuvrability  easy/safe movement of crew between tug and barge. Due to good hull form of barge, good linkage arrangements unit can easily sail at 8k + economically and can top out at near 10k. Barge has electric bow thruster, tug has twin screw so very easy to handle. Barge has

4 winches, 4 windlasses/anchors. Major work completed in 2010, only operated one year, shows like new vessel.

 

THIS COMBO  HAS OBVIOUS ATTRACTIONS AS AN INSHORE CONSTRUCTION BARGE, COASTAL CLEARANCE/WRECK REMOVAL BARGE, AS WELL AS FOR CARGO OPERATIONS WITH HEAVY CARGOS AND ALSO THOSE REQUIRING EXTRA STRONG, BEACHING FACITILIES.

 

IN OPEN SEA CONDITIONS, TUG WILL SEPARATE FROM BARGE AND TOW INSTEAD OF PUSH.
