Dravo Corporation, Pittsburgh PA - Barges

Most recent update: June 22, 2010.


Dravo's Neville Island shipyard, in Pittsburgh, was started in 1919.  It was activated by the Navy for WWII, to build LSTs, with an investment of $12mm.  After the war it was a ship scrapping facility for a few years and then returned to building inland river barges and towboats.  It closed in 1983.  See the site of the shipyard from the air on Google here.  This table lists only the barges built by Dravo in Pittsburgh.  Click here to see a table of the ships and boats built at the yard and here to see the output of Dravo's yard in Wilmington DE.  Please note that many of the older barges were undoubtedly built in batches but there have been so many changes of name, changes of ownership and deletions that it is almost impossible to group them in the way that is possible with the more recent hulls.  Please send any additions and/or corrections to this table to timcolton@aol.com.
