The Owensboro, KY-based Yager Marine, member of the Carmeuse Group, was awarded a contract to partner with the Owensboro Riverport Authority to build a new spud barge for a new material handler. This will increase bulk and other cargo capacity and lead to additional jobs and economic development for the Ohio River town. “We’re very pleased to be building for a local business, a local company right here in Owensboro,” said Jim Yager, Area Operations Manager, Yager Marine.

Yager Marine’s parent company Yager Materials was purchased by Carmeuse in 2019. The company builds barges of all types including  crane, dock and deck barges as well as dry docks. The new spud barge will be 106 ft. by 50 ft. and is expected to be delivered in June 2022.
