A Titan Salvage team is using a 142ft crane barge RMG300 to help clear debris and other navigational hazards in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The team has also hired a 150ft crane barge MB1215 to support the marine construction needed to position two, 400ft by 100ft Crowley deck barges in the port.

The barges will be used as floating piers for discharging cargo, Infomarine said.

Since January, Crowley has delivered nearly 935 containers of relief cargo using cargo lightering operation.

The team is also working with the US Transportation Command to re-establish port functionality following the earthquake which ravaged the island in January.
