design / tug & barges
Inshore and Inland Tugs and Barges
Two pusher tug / integrated barge sets have been
designed, the smaller of the two being built by Southern Engineering
in Mombassa Kenya for operation on Lake Victoria.
The 2nd, a larger set, with a 2m tug, and 45m barge,
capable of carrying some 600t deadweight never reached fruition, due
to the untimely passing of Mr Rowley Morgan, partway through the project.
This design, complete with its exisitng full specification, can be
used either as a ready design for similar applications or further
developed (customised) for differing applications.
Both designs are for very low draft, and thus both
use the twin screw, tunnel thruster concept.
