Tugboat and barge train for transportation of cargoes by waterways

Basic advantages of a suggested tugboat + barge train are as follows:

- lower construction costs at the same cargo capacity;

- increased survivability, crew and goods safety in emergencies;

- tugboat and barge can be used separately when the other component of the train is under repairs or bunkering, which boosts operational efficiency;

- reduction of repair costs as requirements of the River and Maritime Register of Shipping to individual component of the train (tug and barge) are not so strict;

- new class notation allows the train to go out from river to sea;

- articulated coupling of barge and tugboat decreases breaking load into the hull (fracture) and enhances lifetime.
