Dravo Offers Free 66-Page Color Brochure Describing Towboat & Barge Designs

Dravo Corporation, proud of the firm's marine capabilities, recently issued a 66-page, hard-cover, ring-bound brochure describing the company's facilities and its standard towboat and barge designs.

This attractive book contains many color photographs and is divided into six sections covering capabilities, towboats, dry cargo barges, coal barges, tank barges and special purpose barges.

It completely describes the 2,800 hp, 4,200 hp, 5,600 hp, 6,000-6,400 hp, 7,000 hp and 10,500 hp Viking class towboats as well as all the barge designs.

A separate page is included for each towboat and barge containing detailed plans and specifications.

Dravo's Neville Island shipyard is located on the Ohio River, 10 miles downstream from its corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pa. Approximately 70 acres of land accommodate administrative, engineering and sales offices, along with construction facilities for towboats and barges, a barge cover construction and marshalling yard, launching ways, outfitting and loading docks. These facilities also include marine repair services afloat and a side-haul marine railway.

The firm's in-house capabilities make it possible to produce quality marine equipment efficiently and economically to their design or the customer's specifications.

The facilities make it possible to build in excess of IV2 barges each working day and to launch a towboat every three weeks.
