Barge Master has obtained ISO 9001 certification for the development and exploitation of its offshore motion compensation systems, the company announced today in a press statement.

Barge Master said its quality assurance, safety, health and environment (QASHE) system is in compliance with legal, industry and Barge Master standards. For the quality part, the company received the ISO 9001 certificate.

According to Barge Master, the company is able to work more efficiently by standardizing its processes. The company expects its personnel to use the standards and train new staff to use them, too. Additionally, regular audits help the company continuously adjust and improve this approach.

Barge Master Equipment has been certified by Lloyd’s Register as a lifting appliance and marine operations were surveyed by DNV.

Barge Master develops and produces wave compensation platforms for the offshore industry and provides a solution to the problem of sea-induced vessel motions. Motion compensation platforms for cranes or supply of loads are typical examples of Barge Master applications. Moreover, new versions are continually being developed to accommodate different uses.
