RECENT NEWS AND EVENTS ABOUT ARCOSA MARINE
ARCOSA Marine recently completed the first special purpose built 200’ x 70’ hopper barge to move containers. With the “Container on Barge” (COB) investments being made, ARCOSA built these barges to help foster development of more COB movement on the inland waterways. We decided to not just talk about it so we built two so people can put them to work. This special barge takes the place of two traditional 200’ x 35’ barges in any hopper barge tow but allows for an additional forty (40’) containers in the same area in a tow.
YEAR ARCOSA MARINE BECAME A CORBA MEMBER
A COMMENT ON WHY ARCOSA MARINE CHOSE TO BE A MEMBER OF CORBA
We have heard people talk about this dynamic group for a few years. Since the ARCOSA name is new, the shipyards and people have been in the industry for years under previous names, we wanted to get more involved in active groups that help promote the river industry. CORBA fit that role.
