Intercontinental Ships Houston Barge Rig

Semi-submersible Deck Barge

Freight forwarder Intercontinental Shipping has delivered a jack-up barge rig from Texas to Trinidad.

The over-dimensional item was loaded to semi-submersible deck barge and transported from Houston. The rig weighed a total of 4,572 tonnes and was cold stacked alongside the quay.

“Intercontinental's responsibilities included agency processing with authorities for tug and semi-submersible to enter and discharge equipment, logistical support for float off operations, berthing and demobilizing for further works in the territory,” a spokesperson for the firm said.

Based in Trinidad and Tobago, Intercontinental operates three offices across the islands and is a member of the Project Logistics Alliance, which represents around 200 pre-qualified project forwarders in 114 countries.
