Madelaine-D

Argosy Barge Lines, LLC of Bellaire, Texas, accepted the Madelaine-D 2502 as the newest addition to their fleet in March 2013. The ABS-classed deck barge was built by Sterling Shipyard of Port Neches, Texas. The barge was designed by Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. (BHGI) of Bristol Rhode Island, and construction of the vessel was overseen by BHGI’s sister company, The Shearer Group, Inc., of Houston, Texas.

Madelaine-D 2502, named after Mrs. Madelaine D. Griswold, an officer and owner of the company, is a 250 ft x 54 ft x 12 ft load line deck barge with an allowable deck load of 2,500 lbs/ft2. For the past seven successful months Madelaine-D 2502 has been primarily utilized for the movement of over-dimensional cargo, Argosy’s specialty.

Rider Griswold, Argosy’s President, noted “This new barge increases our capacity and will allow Argosy to continue to provide exceptional service to our clients, even as the load line deck barge market tightens with an improving economy.” Argosy focuses on turn-key solutions for its clients’ over-dimensional cargo requirements, and having the right platform for these solutions is half the battle. Madelaine-D 2502 is the right platform at the right time.
