Some thing from the less glamorous end of the business - a submersible barge, the AMT Trader. AMT stands for Anchor Marine Transport, a British company which was bought by Augustea in 2004. The barge is equipped with multiple tanks and two ballast pumps with a capacity of 1200 m3/hr. They are driven by three Cat engines. It has a deck area of 4600 m3 and a deadweight ion 25,000 tonnes. If you look at the pics on Google it has done lots of work.
