I came across these pictures with no explanations. They look like "ALPHAS" but why would they be on barges and where are they going?

When surfaced, the bridge access hatch can be optionally open or shut, however, when submerged it is required to be shut. (Really a no s***t precaution from a procedure in use in the sub fleet today.)
