Elliott Bay Design Group has extensive experience in design and engineering support for various types of tank and deck cargo barges. Our experience with specialized applications in areas such as multi-cargo, hazardous cargo, and specialty equipment barges has given EBDG an advantage when assessing unusual situations. The EBDG barge design team provides full technical and regulatory support to operators and shipyards through the complex process of engineering a repair, refit, update or complete new design. Our portfolio of designs range in size and capacity, from shallow-draft river service to bunkering, ocean towing and ATBs.
EBDG provides an extensive list of construction support and documentation services for barge builders at whatever level of detail they may require, including detail design, NC lofting, 3D pipe routing and spooling, and regulatory liaison. EBDG has accumulated extensive towing tank test data, ensuring that its barge designs have reliable towing and seakeeping characteristics.
In recent years, systems on barges have advanced significantly in safety and complexity. EBDG supports its customers in the design and integration of systems of all types, including vapor control and recovery, inerting, cargo transfer and blending, ballasting, and others.
