Outstanding barge repair and maintenance craftsmanship!

Barge repair and maintenance

Westport Orange Shipyard delivers unparalleled expertise in the maintenance of offshore and inland barges. Two floating dry docks capable of lifting up to 30,000-barrel barges are utilized for inspection, survey and repair services.

Barges can be transferred using hydraulic heavy weight transporters in less than 2 hours. Our indoor blast and paint shops provide the ability to provide surface preparation under any weather conditions. Working in a controlled environment cuts production time in half.

For major steel work or coating, barges and boats are transferred onto land. A marine railway system totaling 1,500 feet (sections of 600 and 900 feet) along with 20 acres of stabilized land provide the capacity to simultaneously work on as many as 15 barges.

An extensive fabrication facility with gantry cranes, panel lines and a press brake offers effective fabrication of modules for steel renewals. Two fully enclosed paint shops provide efficient all weather surface preparation and coating application.

We offer gas free services at our facility. These services may be used prior to major repair projects or as standalone services to meet cargo requirements.
