36’ x 12’ Aluminum Barge


Nichols Diversified Industries is building this 36’x12’ aluminum barge for Barnard of Nevada, who will transfer ownership to Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA). This is a work barge for use on Lake Mead by SNWA. It is equipped with a hydraulic power unit (HPU) which provides power to four mooring winches, and a 25,000 lb lifting winch located over a moonpool in the center of the barge. The mooring winches will be used for holding the barge in precise locations while the lifting winch will lift loads close to its maximum capacity. The onboard davit will be used for lifting loads up to 1500 lbs and will deploy and recover an ROV for unmanned underwater inspections. Removable handrail sections keep the barge flexible for other more typical work barge applications.
