Barge and Crane Hire

Polaris Marine has a reliable fleet of barges for hire for your marine or harbour projects. Whatever your need may be, we can help. From waterside construction deliveries, or transport of vehicle and construction equipment for commercial, residential and industrial work; to salvage solutions, rubbish or excavation collection and disposal and harbour towage, we have the right crane and barge best suited for each project requirement.

Project developers, construction or engineering companies, landscape or excavation companies, as well as events management companies can all find that we have the right barges and cranes for all their projects’ needs.

Waterside Construction Deliveries

Barge hire to waterside construction sites forms one of the cores of marine harbour services offered by Polaris Marine. The flexibility of our barges to access sites where road or land access is difficult or nonexistence is first class. For all those complicated deliveries, Polaris lives up to its motto “Delivering the difference’ by doing site inspections to pre-empt any difficulties arising on the actual day.

Adaptable Waterside Construction Delivery Methods For Efficient Transport 

Our delivery area encompasses all sheltered waters of Sydney ranging from as far north as Manly to as far south as Sutherland and all areas in between. Due to the nature of our marine environment, it can be challenging to maintain a tight schedule but as testified by our client base this is a goal that Polaris is successful attaining.

The combination of our crane barges and our experienced and qualified crew allows the delivery of products as small as a generator to as large as a 40’ container, as fragile as a small sculpture to as heavy as a concrete truck. The range and reliability of our fleet ensure that our delivery service offers both an economical and efficient solution to any query.

Excavation and Waste Collection and Disposal

Polaris Marine’s barges provide a comprehensive waste collection service for waterside properties.  A choice of our custom made 2m3 bins or 1m3 bulk bags ensure that all rubbish or excavation material can be removed from both residential and/or commercial sites.  Generally, the disposal of waste is managed directly by Polaris Marine but our service can accommodate the client organising his own means of disposal.  Our selection of barges for hire guarantee a cost-effective solution for waste removal.

Dredging vessel supply and support

In recent times Polaris Marine has invested in and acquired specialized vessels and equipment for the dredging industry.

Our vessels have been designed to suit hopper barge towage, float pipe maneuvering and connection, backhoe dredge assistance and relocation, and all aspects of day to day dredging requirements.

Our vessels are able to work in shallow water depths with minimum under keel clearance.
Recently, our expansion in this field has seen us construct a specifically designed sweep bar and modifications to one of our tugs for the dual point attachment of the 20t bar.  As such we now offer services for bed leveling and sweeping operations.

Our sweep tug was chosen for her minimum crew requirements and low fuel consumption, making her very popular on dredge projects.

Polaris Marine has handpicked specific crew ranging from Masters to General Purpose hands, all with years of experience on dredging projects throughout Australia.

Our vessels and experienced crew, coupled with our proven track record make Polaris Marine the right choice for any dredge projects wanting to maximise production rates and KPI’s.

ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES

Sand Dredging

With over 30 years of experience in the marine industry, Polaris Marine provides assistance to sand dredging and bed leveling operations. We boast a strong track record in the marine construction sector, making us the perfect partner to work with on large-scale dredge projects aiming for high production rates.

Our wide selection of barges and tugs are designed to cover all aspects of the dredging process. Whether it’s to relocate and dispose marine aggregates or to install floating silt curtains for sediment control, our fleet has what it takes to help carry your sand dredging project to completion. We currently own and operate EDI, which now carries a dual mounter 20t sweep bar, making her the perfect choice for any dredging project. We also made refitted one of largest tugs, Molly Grace, to provide support in large-scale sand dredging operations.

Polaris Marine also supplies and installs silt and turbidity curtains, which help control the amount of sediment and debris that gets into the water. This prevents sediment from spreading and affecting Australia’s marine life. After consulting with us, our highly qualified staff will install the silt and turbidity curtains on your behalf. As with all Polaris Marine products, expect high-quality sediment control from our silt curtains.

We carefully handpick our crew, each equipped with years of experience working in sand dredging projects, to deliver exceptional service to you. With our specialized vessels and highly trained crew, Polaris Marine is the number one choice to take on large-scale sand dredging projects. Contact us if you are in need of assistance in your coastal or offshore projects.

Silt Curtaining Services

When doing marine or inshore construction, pile driving or dredging activities, it is inevitable to get silt, sediment and debris in the water. During these times, it is important to maintain silt and turbidity control to follow environmental regulations during your project work.

Silt and turbidity control is another service the Polaris Marine team offers. We have our vessels and barges set up to handle any challenge or installation, wherever the location.

PMCE Joint Ventures

Polaris Marine and Chatoyer Environmental Pty Ltd (“Chatoyer”) have established a joint venture where each of our specialist services and products require and complement each other in relation to environmentally sensitive projects. Chatoyer produces oil spill response products, turbidity containment booms, and near shore & offshore containment booms. It was a natural progression for Polaris Marine to join with Chatoyer, as Polaris Marine and its employees have had many years’ experience in the installation of these products around dredge zones, reclamation areas and marine construction sites.

Polaris Marine and Chatoyer work together to design, research and develop products that handle almost any marine environmental requirement.
