Articulated Tug Barges

An articulated tug barge (ATBs) is a vessel that consists of a tug and a barge that are joined together to form a single unit. ATBs are used for transporting goods and material in the coastwise trade.

Benefits of using Articulated Tug Barges

Fincantieri's Articulated Tug Barges can navigate shallow water and increase maneuverability compared to a traditional barge.

Our ATBs offer many advantages over traditional barges, making them ideal for various applications such as oil spill response, coastal construction, and dredging. Some of the key benefits of ATBs include:

  • Increased maneuverability and control: The articulated design of ATBs increases maneuverability and control, making them easier to navigate in tight spaces and adverse conditions.
  • Higher cargo capacity: ATBs can carry up to 30% more cargo than traditional barges, making them ideal for large-scale projects.
  • Improved safety: The articulated design of ATBs reduces the risk of capsizing, making them safer to operate in rough conditions.
