Donjon Marine Co., Inc. was invited by the State Fire Marshall and the Director of the New Jersey Division of Fire Safety
to participate in an exercise conducted by members of the Union and Morris County Fire Services to test and showcase the capabilities of a portable marine firefighting system known as Neptune/Iron Man. On May 26, at Donjon’s Berth 22 Port New
ark Facility, Donjon loaded the Neptune/Iron Man firefighting system onto Donjon’s newly built 225 x 54 x 14-ft. deck barge
, the Witte 254, along with necessary support equipment including a forklift, rigging, and matting to move the gear during the exercise. On May 27, Donjon’s tug Atlantic Salvor took the Witte 254 and associated gear into Newark Bay where the fire-fighting system was tested successfully.
