We also have two 650,000 BTU barge heaters, allowing us to wash and more quickly reassign your barge even in temperatures well below freezing,


In 2010, we converted our barge cleaning operations from diesel to full electric to reduce our carbon footprint.
We provide stevedoring services with one crane on Pier 3 and two cranes on Pier 2.
Mt. Vernon Barge Service has one of the finest cleaning facilities on the Ohio River, fully electric, holding up to eight barges and cleaning up to four barges at one time.

We have all our EPA water department permits and a high capacity containment barge.
