Capital Refit: WV No.1 Capital Rebuild

With the limited supply of good quality barges on the coast, West Coast Tug & Barge Ltd hauled out its 2,500 MT barge and made the decision to completely rebuild its structure.  This included the replacement of the starboard and port side, new skegs, repaired the concrete deck, refurbished its 50’ engineered ramp, and then finished with new paint and zincs.  This project was completed over a 5 month period, and managed internally by management and its own shore crew.  This project took place in its home base of Campbell River. It was a successful project, and the company is developing this component of work as a new division of its current business.
