Ascension Island Barges
Manor Marine commenced the building of three barges for the Ascension Island Government in January 2018. This is the second contract Manor Marine has been awarded from the Ascension Island Government, the first was in 2005. Each barge has the dimensions of 17m in length, 7m in breadth and a depth of 1.7m.
As flights to the island are limited and not having a port, the barges are used to transport goods and equipment to and from anchored vessels. Each barge is equipped with a Navigator Unit (Schottel Model 150 rudder propeller) and features 4 lifting eyes for ease of deployment and recovery.
