The Osprey, a 13,400 dwt Self-Propelled Barge, is Oldendorff Carriers' newest barge to join her sister barges, the Eagle, Falcon and Hawk

The Osprey, a 13,400 dwt self-propelled barge constructed by Jiangsu Nantong Tongshun Shipbuilding for Oldendorff Carriers, follows the design of three other barges that feature the same EMS-Tech unloading system rated for discharge of iron ore at a rate of 2,500 tph.  The Osprey will be situated off the coast of Abu Dhabi where she will join her sister barges, the Eagle, Falcon and Hawk to transfer increased volumes of iron ore from Capesize vessels to the Emirates Steel plant located there.

The Osprey, like her sister barges, is arranged with a gravity discharge system comprising patented EMS-Tech Feeder Gates, tunnel conveyor, an in-line 'S' Loop sandwich belt elevator and an aft mounted telescoping boom for transfer of material to the shore receiving hopper.
