Poseidon P2-7′ Sectional Barges on the Fox River Project
Unique is the word to best describe the applications Poseidon Barge sees their Portable Sectional Barges to being used in. “As contractors see firsthand the versatility of our barges, they begin to think outside the box,” comments Scott Sprunger, Central US Sales Representative. “Each inquiry brings a unique opportunity to use the product in new and exciting ways. We like to be able to demonstrate how our barges can adapt to any situation and highlight their strength at the same time. Poseidon’s have much more muscle than what were available to contractors in the past.”
Highlighting could be an understatement in terms of the strength of the Poseidon Barges when referring to a current project in Green Bay, WI. Poseidon’s P2 7ft model are being utilized by La Crosse, WI based marine contractor, JF Brennan in an environmental remediation on Fox River. “When JF Brennan’s representatives asked us if we thought our 7 ft barges would be capable of handling the materials they needed at Fox River, I immediately knew they would,” Sprunger said. “We designed our barges for the heavy tasks. This is definitely one.” Poseidon Barge utilizes a patented roll form material that gives the barges a deck strength of 4 times that of the competition when measured in lbs per square foot. “This is a huge advantage to the contractor. More material, means less trips up and down the river. Less trips means more time actually working towards completion of the project. It’s a big win for the contractor.”

New Bridge Replaces Deficient 1920s-Vintage Structure
Northeast Remsco, Farmingdale, NJ using Poseidon P10 Barges
Passaic County, NJ officials are replacing the West Brook Road Bridge which connects the boroughs of Ringwood and Wanaque, separated by the Wanaque Reservoir. With $28.7 million in federal aid funding, the project is slated for completion in 2017. Construction of the new structure will begin this summer.
The existing bridge, built in 1926, is a 7-span, simply supported concrete T-girder bridge cast monolithically with a reinforced concrete deck. It is being replaced by a 3-span, continuous variable depth steel plate girder structure, approximately 650 ft long, with a reinforced concrete deck. The bridge profile will be set to provide a minimum of 6 feet of vertical clearance over the 100-year pool elevation.
