Hovertrans Solutions Pte. Ltd. (Hovertrans Solutions) is a designer and manufacturer of hoverbarges for heavy lift in difficult terrain in the global oil and gas, and specialist transportation industries.

The amphibious hoverbarge is capable of carrying thousands of tonnes in payload over swamps / wetlands, tundra, ice and shallow water. A significant advantage of the hoverbarge is that it only exerts 1psi ground pressure whilst on hover, thus minimizing any environmental footprint.

Hovertrans Solutions will be exhibiting on the VT Halter Marine stand at the International WorkBoat Show 2010, New Orleans from the 1-3 December, booth 735.  Hovertrans Solutions and VT Halter Marine are both companies of ST Marine.

Hovertrans Solutions has developed a new modular range of hoverbarges ranging from 50 tons to 400 tons. The modular hoverbarge is constructed from specially designed pontoons with a modular skirt and lift fan system. The modularity means that the hoverbarge can now operate inside previously difficult to access areas. The hoverbarge can be trucked to the location and assembled on-site, enabling access to inland areas such as lakes, rivers and wetlands. Another significant advantage is that mobilization and de-mobilization costs are significantly reduced thus making it more cost effective to own and operate hoverbarges for charter companies.
