Hercules - Canada

The St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation's heavy lift crane barge Hercules is seen in this photograph secured alongside the north end of wharf 1 in the harbour at Port Weller. It was taken during the evening hours of September 12th. This is the crane barge that was used to clear the wreckage that was once bridge 12 in Port Robinson back in 1974. It is the only unit owned by the Seaway capable of lifting the large lock gates that are used at each of the locks along the canal.
