Split Hopper Barge WH762 – Heron Construction
This 59 metre non-propelled split hopper barge came to Whangarei Harbour experts Ship Repair recently. The 750m3 vessel has a large open hold and is used to transport dredged material. We carried out general fabrication and welding repairs over the main decks.
Following this was replacement of four sets of large mooring bollards.
Boarding steps then needed to be fabricated and installed on the port and starboard.
Following this we carried out removal of the small machinery house and a tidy up and paint job.
There was also a full strip of the underwater paint and a full paint system over the complete barge.
