Mooring barge

A Stable Point in the Drift

Our mooring barges, known in boat jargon as “muci”or “dumpster”, are involved in all our projects. These floating structures are equipped with reels to help moor our boats and they are also used for storing the anchors. We have four available: MUCI I, MUCI II, MUCI III and MUCI IV.

The MUCIs are unmanned, open, heavy-duty, wide, flat-bottomed, low-built crafts and are tapered at both ends. Their anchors, weighing one tonne, provide adequate support for the vessels being serviced in drifting conditions during the time they are moored. They are easily manoeuvrable, so that the boat, barge or floating crane can be easily adjusted to the correct position.


Their name comes from the old sailor’s language, in which we call everything by something other than what it looks like. Because of the increasing familiarity with the English language, they are often nicknamed Muki by those less familiar with the language.
