MODULAR VESSELS - MODULAR SELF PROPELLED CARGO FUEL /
DECK CARGO VESSELS
Triton has developed a series of Modular Self
Propelled Cargo Barges/Vessels for both River / Inland application
and Sea Going application. These vessels are offered on a
turn-key basis by Triton, by teaming up with Nicos Engineering
for the Fabrication, and Hydro Armor for the Propulsion.
These vessels pictured here are designed such that they can be remanufactured
in their entirety and then shipped in modules to virtually any destination
via containership and container truck, and then assembled and commissioned
They are designed to carry liquid cargo as well as deck cargo. The
latter either being loose or palleted deck cargo or vehicles. The
inner pontoons are designed as liquid cargo tanks for either fuel
or water, and equipped with all the necessary cargo pumping facilities
for loading and offloading.
The vessels are also equipped with either bow or side ramps as per
Their propulsion is by way of Hydro
Armor deck mounted Powerpacks, and stern mounted rudder propellers.
These thrusters are lift-able, trim-able and steer-able.
In the case of the 450t barge (larger vessel), the limited draft in
the area of application has dictated that four thrusters (with smaller
propellers) be driven by two 680HP powerpacks. An added advantage
of this arrangement is that the vessel can be driven downstream on
one engine and two thrusters, or a propeller can be replaced (by lifting
and trimming the thruster) whilst the vessel is still underway on
two or three other thrusters, hence reducing the downtime. Different
size Hydro Armor Power Packs/ Thruster combinations can be accommodated
as per clients requirements.
The larger vessel in picture can take 450tonnes of cargo in way of
529Cub.m. of Cargo Fuel, or 450tonnes of Deck Cargo or combination
thereof. It also has accommodation for nine. One Capt and eight crew,
arranged with separate captains quarters and 2x4man cabins, complete
with galley and mess facilities.
The next size has a carrying capacity of 200t by similar configuration
carrying either Fuel or Water (and then plumbed accordingly). The
smallest vessel having a 100tonne carrying capacity. Both these smaller
vessels share the same deskhouse design, and have accommodation for
four crew, complete with galley and mess facilities. Other client
specific accommodation requirements can also be met.
Triton offers these vessels on a turn-key basis with
all fabrication, and outfitting of modular units done in Cape Town,
and then shipped, assembled and commissioned onsite.
