Custom solution: making a dismountable split hopper barge

A Swiss customer with a shipyard on Lac Neuchatel purchased a split hopper barge that could only be delivered over water. How can that work if you are located on a lake? To deliver the split hopper barge, we divided it into 4 pieces that could be transported by road. By equipping the split hopper  barge with an engine and a wheelhouse, we met another of the customer’s needs: a self-propelled split barge.  

Watch the video about how we made the split barge dismountable and motorised: 

  • Division of the split barge into 4 pieces
