Great Lakes Shipyard, Cleveland, Ohio, completed construction and delivery of two new barges for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The barges will be used to perform critical maintenance and inspections of lock and dam facilities on the upper Mississippi River lock and dam section. One of the barges will service Lock and Dam 16 in Illinois City, Ill. while the other one will service Lock and Dam 18 in Gladstone, Ill.

Great Lakes Shipyard, a division of The Great Lakes Towing Company, operates a full-service shipyard and drydock in Cleveland, OH, and specializes in all types of marine construction and repairs for all types of vessels, including tugs, supply boats, ferries, barges, excursion vessels, dinner boats, research vessels, large yachts, and off-site topside work of every kind.  The company is currently expanding its capabilities for new vessel construction, repairs and for aluminum and steel fabrication. The Company recently placed an order for a new 700-ton mobile boat hoist. This will be the largest of its type on the Great Lakes, including both U.S. and Canada, and the second largest in North America.

Current work under contract in the shipyard includes dry-docking and repairs on the Ferry Vessel William Market, new construction of two sets of Sectional Floating Restroom Barges for the National Park Service, and the construction of two new 70-ft Aluminum Research Vessels for U.S. Geological Survey’s Great Lakes Science Center headquartered in Ann Arbor, Mich.
