Shallow Water Utility Barge “Miss Pennie”

OCS Shallow Water Utility Barge “Miss Pennie” is conceived, constructed and operated by OCS. The barge is based in Batam, Indonesia and is designed to support shallow water projects of all descriptions. OCS has purchased two units of long boom CAT 390 excavators for pre-trenching and the barge has in-built mooring winches and spuds required to support pre-trenching, post trenching, small pipelay and other strategic marine operations.
