The Pohonui is a 55m by 13m holding barge that requires tow by tug. With a carrying capacity of 1,500 tonnes and roll-on, roll-off features, the Pohonui serves as a perfect bulk transport vessel. Chartered alongside the Acheron III tug, the maneuverability capabilities allow for access to restricted locations.
The Pohonui also has the ability to extract sand and gravel via stationery dredging.
Recent contracts undertaken by the Pohonui under tow by the Acheron III include supplying material, equipment, and machinery to the Chatham Islands for the recent breakwater and wharf development. The Chathams are renowned for its harsh weather to which our vessel still thrived, making several trips.
