Hughes Marine is dedicated to being a turn-key barge rental and marine solution for all of your “Green” projects. Like every industry, the maritime industry grows more ecologically friendly and environmentally sustainable every year. With limited land in and around New York Harbor, some of our recent customers have turned toward the water and the use of deck barge rental for environmental projects.
One of the more well-known projects with which we’re involved is The Science Barge on the Hudson River here in New York. The Science Barge is operated by Groundworks Hudson Valley as a floating greenhouse run by 100% alternative energy, such as solar and hydroelectric tidal power. We are very pleased with our partnership with Groundworks and only hope that we have an opportunity to participate in more similar barge rental projects in the future. You can read more about The Science Barge HERE.
We also recently completed our first wind-energy transportation job for Zotos International, by transporting a wind turbine from Philadelphia, PA to Albany, NY. Wind Energy, specifically offshore wind energy, has been a hot topic for several years. Big things are happening in the Cape Cod area and off the Jersey Shore. We provide the barge rental and maritime logistics support for the transport all of your oversize turbines, blades, and modules for all of these offshore (or inland) wind projects.
With solar, wind, and tidal power sources on the rise, we look forward to being the barge rental and marine transportation resource for East Coast energy companies. With the world currently experiencing a mass shift toward urbanization, land will become even more premium and we will need to find ways to both maximize our use of space as well as supply energy to urban populations. Green energy will be at the forefront of that revolution.
