WORKBOATS

We have a long and thorough experience working in the Hidrovía Paraguay Paraná. That knowledge is embedded in our projects.

6000HP Shallow draft – LNG push boat.

This project, presently being developed, is in an advanced stage. Further from introducing the LNG propulsion, it has a quite modern design, with state-of-the-art resources in manoeuvrability, hydrodynamics, vibrations control, etc. The result is a very efficient, low cost, environment friendly vessel. This project is part of a general plan to replace the propulsion by IFO and MDO with LNG in a first step, aiming low contamination and low carbon emissions.

Multipurpose Pushboat

This tug is conceived as a very flexible unit, easy to adapt to different tasks. It can be fit to different operations by adding modules and accessories.
The tug admits up to 22 TEU that can be used for accommodation of crew and other people, salvage/diving equipment storage, spill control gear, temporary workshops, FIFI, etc. It can be fitted with one or two cranes and with an “A” frame. The bridge can be raised to improve visibility when operating with 3 container tiers.
This workhorse is designed to be robust and simple. Manoeuvrability is enhanced by using flap rudders. There is space for a duct bow thruster within the pushing knees. The installation of other type of bow thruster is also possible.

Barges

Barges are quite simple floating units. In Consulmar, we design them by considering extreme situations like grounding, asymmetrical groundings, abusive cargo distribution, etc. By FEM modelling them we can produce safer and lighter, more rational designs. This is very important in barges that outdo standard dimensions, like Parana type.

Other Cases:

 

  • Hopper ore barges.
  • Tugs.
  • Dredges.
  • Tow boats.
