Barge Ballasting

Ballasting a barge is a balancing act

Ballasting a barge is a delicate but necessary operation. The water helps keep the barge level during loading and unloading, which is critical when transferring large structures such as components of a bridge. The ballasting requirements also change for load out and float over procedures.

With unprecedented experience in barge ballasting, our products have helped on bridge construction projects from Rhode Island to California and everywhere in between. With Xylem, you will:
