Yongsheng barges and tugboats are engineered and built to carry cutter suction dredgers and other pieces of heavy equipment. They can tow the dredgers and lift the pump casings and cutters. The tug boats can also lift the components and the crew.
These barges and tugboats when combined with dredgers, greatly improve operation efficiency. The rectangular hulls of the vessels are designed for stability and a large working area. The sterns of the boats have been shaped to maximize beaching capability without causing damage to the propellers and rudders.
