Bisso Responds to Damaged Railroad Bridge

Tuesday, July 10, 2007
Following an emergency call, Bisso Marine mobilized the 600 ton capacity D/B Lili Bisso to Amelia, La., to lift the Bayou Boeuf Railroad Bridge which had been struck by a tug and barge resulting in significant damage to the bridge span. Upon arrival at the site, the D/B Lili Bisso lifted the damaged 200 ton bridge span and placed it on to a deck barge. The bridge span was then transferred to a local repair facility where the D/B Lili Bisso would again lift the bridge span and place it into the repair yard. Upon completion of the repairs, the D/B Lili Bisso again lifted the repaired span and placed it back on to the deck barge. The deck barge and D/B Lili Bisso were then transferred back to the rail line where the span was put back on to its supports allowing the rail traffic to resume.
