Stevens Shipyard recently splashing one of the five (195’ x 35’) material barges that came to our shipyard for a life extension. These barges were purchased out of the inland river system and towed around to the East Coast. On the way to their project location, they stopped at our shipyard to prepare them for a big long term project. The scope of work for this particular barge included cropping and renewing bilge wrap plates (knuckle plates) along the port and starboard side, cropping and renewing sections of the bottom hull plate and adding a sacrificial plate at the bow rake tanks bottom hull. Once all the steel work was completed, we sandblasted and painted the barge from the deck down, install 110 bolt on aluminum anodes 6”X12”, welded on draft numbers and covered all internals with a coating.
