Bisso Marine has added the D/B Bisso 350 derrick barge to its expanding fleet. Built to service the offshore industry, the revolving D/B Bisso 350 will be used for salvage, offshore construction and diving operations. The vessel has three load blocks: 350 mt (385 st), 150 mt (165 st) and 12 mt (13 st).

“The D/B Bisso 350 is a solid addition to our fleet, increasing our capabilities and expanding the level of our services,” said President and Chief Executive Officer W.A. “Beau” Bisso IV.

The vessel is eight-point moored and has dimensions of 250 x 78 x 18 ft. It can accommodate 52 people. Formerly named Anna 4, it was purchased from Hapo International Barges of Rotterdam and is class certified by Lloyd’s Register. It flies the Panamanian flag and will be in worldwide service.
