Great Lakes Shipyard was awarded a drydocking contract by Huffman Equipment for load line renewal of Huffman’s 135’ x 35’ deck barge No. 975 in mid-August 2016. The barge was hauled out using the Shipyard’s 770-ton capacity Marine Travelift on August 15, 2016 for ABS surveys.
Maintenance and repairs included routine drydocking, steel repairs, cleaning and painting. Work was completed mid-September 2016.
Drydocking of other Huffman barges is expected later this fall.
