Marine Services - Barge
Southwest British Columbia
Ledcor owns twenty-two barges to serve natural resource and industrial customers in Southwest British Columbia (BC). We also own seven tugs, five based in Richmond, BC and one vessel working full time in Victoria. When its capability is needed, we also have a multi-purpose sectional pontoon barge that can be trucked anywhere across North America.
Our barges are currently used to serve clients in the forestry, bio-energy, and industrial sectors. They are used to ship woodchips, biomass, aggregate, building materials and general cargo - with the ability to transport many more products by water.
In 2014, Ledcor acquired two 80 metre barges, each equipped with a deck strength of over 3,000 lbs/sq.ft. These barges can transport a wide variety of potential cargoes including bulk commodities, containers, equipment modules, and construction materials such as pipe.
