This purpose-built barge was designed by Jensen Maritime Consultants to transport a wide variety of cargo between Dutch Harbor and Akutan, Alaska with up to 3 runs per week.

The barge, which will be named Iliuliuk Bay, an Aleut name meaning big island, is designed to house a 230 ton lift capacity Manitowoc 4100 crawler crane. The vesselsí unique design features both D-rings to secure containers up to three high as well as eight lashing bars running fore and aft for other cargo such as heavy construction machinery or general equipment.
