Zidell Marine Corporation, Port- land, Ore., recently launched Barge 27, the second of two chip barges chartered by Tidewater Barge Lines, The barge measures 270 feet in length, 42 feet wide and has a depth of 16-1/2 feet. Both vessels will be used primarily on the Columbia River System. The heap capacity of the barge is about 1,600 units of chips (a unit is equivalent to about 200 cubic feet).
According to Bill Gobel, president, Zidell Marine Corporation, is presently constructing two solid waste barges for a domestic owner.
The barges measure 255 feet by 42 feet by 16-1/2 feet. Total capacity of each barge is about 4,000 long tons.
Zidell Marine has the capability to construct all types and sizes of barges, including deck, grain, petroleum, container, etc.
Another part of the Zidell Marine Group, Zidell, Inc., leases and charters barges.
