Wharf and Jetty Maintenance
Australian Barge Hire has the capacity to provide barges for major wharf and jetty maintenance. We have supplied jack up barges for wharf remediation in Gove, the Lucinda Bulk Sugar Wharf as well as the Hay Point HPX3 wharf maintenance. In the west we have previously and are continuing to supply jack up barges for dolphin refurbishments in Cape Lambert.
Transport of Marine Infrastructure
Our fleet of jack up and modular barges provide a variety of options to carry and transport construction materials such as scaffolding, building components and piles for bridges and other overwater structures. The modular barge system is easily road transported to sites where traditional barges cannot access and can be configured to suit the project specific needs of the client. The modular jack up barge option is unique, offering a stable out of water platform and eliminating wave, tide or strong currents which can often be a concern onsite.
Australian Barge Hire has extensive experience in supplying barge configurations to meet the requirements for repairing, maintaining, rehabilitation and historical restoration of bridges. Our barges provide a stable platform both alongside and under bridges that will support mobile cranes, scaffolding and EWP’s to enable our clients to carry out maintenance works and protective coatings. We have provided barges for Harwood Bridge Project, Morpeth Bridge, Tom Ugly’s Bridge, Hawkesbury River Bridge and Storey bridge being just a few over our 12 years of operation.
