Barges: The Mighty Movers on Water

Barges are the heavy lifters of the river world. They are large, flat boats designed to transport heavy and large items along rivers and canals.

How Big Are They?

Imagine a soccer field. Some barges are almost that long, reaching up to 90 meters (295 feet) in length. They are not just impressive in size but also in strength, capable of carrying up to 1,500 tonnes of cargo. That’s the weight of about 200 cars!

What Do They Carry?

Barges play a crucial role in moving goods. They carry a variety of items like grains, including wheat and corn, coal for power generation, and even large machinery. Occasionally, they’re also used to transport other smaller boats.

Barges and the Environment

Barges are eco-friendly transporters. They can carry large quantities of goods, which means fewer trips and reduced pollution compared to trucks and trains. This is a great way to keep our air and rivers cleaner.

The Journey of a Barge

A barge’s journey is a unique experience. They are usually pushed or pulled by tugboats, moving slowly and steadily through the water. It’s a peaceful and scenic journey, offering a chance to see the riverside world in its full glory.
