With a growing demand for high quality pontoons and barges, Wagenborg recently ordered another two barges at Veka Shipbuilding. The expansion of the existing fleet with the Wagenborg barges ‘10’ and ‘11’ was necessary because of an increase in projects and activities in the oil & gas market and the offshore wind industry.
On the 4th of June the new building pontoon ‘Wagenborg Barge 11’ was launched at the shipyard in Nanjing, China. This pontoon measures 122 meters in length, 36.6 meters in width and 7,6 in height. This barge is equipped with an internal pump system and has a loading capacity of 20,000 tonnes. Wagenborg Barge 11 is expected to be delivered to Royal Wagenborg in October 2014.
