Donjon Towing enjoys bullish project business

July 21 - New Jersey-based tug boat operator Donjon Marine has reported a bullish period of recent marine transportation projects activity despite the economic troubles facing much of the shipping industry.

These services are in addition to the daily work that Donjon's transportation division provides to dredging, salvage, marine demolition and related marine customers.

Examples of recent projects include: 

- Donjon tugs transport barges used to carry all of the steel scrap in the New York/Metropolitan area for SIMS Metals as part of a contract that runs through 2015. Donjon handles approximately 1.8 million tonnes of mixed grades of scrap steel each year;

- Donjon transports various types and grades of bulk stone products from two upstate New York quarries to various New York/Metropolitan Area receiving facilities in support of its customer, O&G Industries, and its customers. Donjon's agreement with O&G runs until Spring 2012. Donjon transports over 300,000 tonnes of stone per year as part of this services contract;

- Donjon was awarded a competitively bid marine transportation services contract to move all New York City Department of Sanitation recycling barges from various distribution points in New York City to a number of re-handling facilities throughout the area. Donjon moves at least one barge of recycled material per day, 365 days per year. This contract runs until 2015.

 

"Donjon continues to expand its marine transportation services based upon the needs of the company's various divisions, the needs of our customers, along with the needs of the marine community as a whole. This approach is consistent with Donjon's overall philosophy of well-planned growth in our target markets," said Steven G. Newes, Donjon's vice president of marine transportation.
