Transhipment Services Australia (TSA) has awarded Damen Shipyards Group a contract for a new crane barge.

TSA will operate the 63-metre barge under contract with Metro Mining to provide transshipment services for its Bauxite Hills Project located along the Skardon River on Cape York Peninsula, north of Weipa in Far North Queensland.

The vessel’s main role will be to load cargo onto Capesize dry bulk vessels.

The new crane barge will be operational by the fourth quarter of 2021. It will join TSA’s fleet of tugs and barges in support of Metro Mining’s activities.
