Transport barge Calshot harbour Tristan du Chuna – Apple Projects 2009

Wale Marine were commissioned to design a light‐weight, low draught self propelled transport barge for transporting dollosse and construction equipment from a supply vessel to the Calshot harbour. The barge was fabricated from HDPE pontoons with a steel space frame superstructure.

The steel superstructure and timber decking was fabricated in Cape Town (under our management) and the HDPE pontoons were supplied by Wale Marine using Customised Plastic Products in Pretoria as our fabrication sub‐contractor.
