Barges Australia hire out barges, pontoons, workboats and related marine equipment to provide floating work platforms, used extensively in water based construction projects. Our vessels have the distinctive features of being modular and road transportable:
Modular pontoons can be used individually, or can be joined together in various configurations to build up larger barges.
Being road transportable ensures that they can readily be mobilised from our base in Sydney to anywhere in Australia (including inland and remote locations) and overseas.
Our barges, pontoons and workboats are designed to provide stable heavy duty floating work platforms for water based construction projects. They are very suitable for a wide range of work applications, including:
Wharf and bridge construction and repair projects
