Bristol Harbor Group has developed a heavily built inland deck barge for Argosy Transportation Group.

The marine engineering company said the 250ft-long Jean-M 2501 is designed to transport large and over-dimensional cargo on inland waterways.

The barge also features a rigid hull girder that can carry 3,000lb of cargo and a heavily built box stern intended for large and heavy roll-on, roll-off operations.

The group said the vessel is scheduled to enter service this week.
