STOCKTON BARGE

Google Barge 002

We are not talking about the container on barge service between the ports of Oakland and Stockton. We are talking about the mystery barge owned by Google. For months, there has been speculation surrounding what Google is doing on the barge docked at Treasure Island. What four-story structure are they building behind the screen? Is it a floating data center? Is is top-secret R&D facility? Google announced recently they are “exploring using the barge as an interactive space where people can learn about new technology.” Don’t really know what that means, but it stopped the questions.

The latest update has Google moving the barge to the Port of Stockton. According to the Treasure Island Development Authority, the barge will be making a move “as early as next week.”

The mystery continues….
