Acquistition of Seeponton 1 from Bugsier

In mid-2017, the German companies Fairplay Towage and Bugsier announced to merge. In 2018 the merger took place, with the Seeponton 1 becoming available for sale. With sister barge H-282 already in possession this is a good opportunity to strengthen the market position in the Baltic Sea region. It’s worth mentioning that the barge includes a so-called ice class.

The Seeponton 1 has since been renamed to H-284, in line with the H-282. The barges have been exploited since 2011. They’ve been used for various projects, both for large transport and as crane-barge, recently in combination with our Hitachi SCX 5000 heavy crane.

The dimensions of the H-284 barge are 84 x 20 x 5.5 meters and she has an internal ballast system with a total capacity of 1200 m3 per hour. At the moment the barge is under charter in Bremerhaven, from mid-2019 she will be available again for her next assignment.
