Mid-America Foundation Supply d/b/a Poseidon Barge was founded in 1986. MAFCO and; Poseidon serves the Heavy Highway, Bridge and; Marine Construction Industries.
The Poseidon Sea Bee pins to the sides of the barges using the same connection system as the barge. The unit is hydraulically raised & lowered while the unit is running. This option allows you to raise the unit up in shallow water and lower in deeper waters. The power pack is attached to the main thrust units on the sides of the barge with quick disconnect hydraulic hoses. This feature allows you to position the power pack at any position on the barge, allowing the steering operator full site around any equipment on the barge. Interchangable connection brackets gives you the ability to attach our unit to multiple barge manufactures. We can also custom design a bracket to fit on to your barge.
Single and Dual units are available. Power requirements depend on the size of the platform, water movement, potential wind load and platform load. The Poseidon Sea Bee is designed to move the platform around the job site. The unit does not require a tug boat captain to operate.
