launches newly constructed Snag Barge for the Corps of Engineers,
The Snag Barge was built for the Corps of Engineers,
Memphis District for use in the support of the navigation
and maintenance mission on the Mississippi River system.
This project entailed the design and construction of a crane
barge for the Memphis District of the Army Corps of Engineers.
The barge will provide a safe and effective means of removing
snag during river bank revetment operations on the Mississippi
River System. The vessel will carry a LinkBelt LH 218 crane,
as well as up to 8 Caterpillar bulldozers. The barge is set
to leave the Newburgh waterfront in November 2014.
The vessel is 200’ long x 50’ wide and weighs
over 1,400 tons.
