PROJECTCON is a special projects charter party for the tug and barge sector. It was designed to remove the need to use up to three different contracts for the same project when operating a tug and semi-submersible barge in combination to transport of special or projects cargoes. Instead of having one contract for the hire of the barge, another for the hire of the tug, and a third for the transportation, PROJECTCON may be used as a single contractual platform.
The latest edition of this contract is PROJECTCON, issued in 2006.

BARGEHIRE is a bareboat charter party specifically designed for unmanned, non-self-propelled seagoing barges. It is a lease agreement whereby the charterer obtains possession and full control of the barge along with the legal and financial responsibility for it. The charterer generally pays for operating expenses such as maintenance and repairs but, unlike bareboat chartered ships, barges are often chartered with owner’s insurances made available to the charterer.
