McDonough Marine Service has launched the first in a series of seven new inland spud barges. The spud barges are being constructed at Yager Marine Industries in Owensboro, Kentucky and range from 110’ to 140’ in length. The first of the series to be launched is the KS 4011 with the dimensions of 110’ x 40’ x 7’6”.

The barge was designed with a boxed stern that provides maximum flotation during crane operations. This design provides operators an opportunity to work safely in the inland marine construction environment, McDonough said.

The KS 4011 drop spud barge is on its maiden voyage and is expected to be fleeted in St. Louis, Mo. With the continual launching of new barges, McDonough Marine Service shows its commitment to maintaining the most comprehensive barge fleet in the United States.
