Barge Master has received a Letter of Award from Boskalis International for employment of the Barge Master motion compensated platform during phase 3 of the Malampaya project, off The Philippines.

The Barge Master system will be used during the second half of 2014 for the installation of a permanent bridge between a newly installed depletion compression platform (DCP) and an existing shallow water gas production platform (SWP).

The Malampaya project will be executed by Boskalis for Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. and comprises the installation of an offshore depletion compression platform at the Malampaya gas field, in the Republic of the Philippines. The new multi-purpose construction DP2 vessel Ndeavor plays a pivotal role in this project.

During phase 3 the Barge Master system will be placed on the Ndeavor. The permanent bridge which is to be installed between the two platforms will be loaded onto the Barge Master platform and sailed out to the project location. Once on site, the bridge will be held still by the Barge Master in order to be lifted off safely by two temporarily installed lifting arrangements.

About Barge Master:
Industry experts have recognized Barge Master as a solution to the age-old problem of sea-induced motions during offshore installation work.
 
Barge Master develops and produces wave compensated platforms for the marine and offshore / near shore construction industry. Motion compensation platforms for cranes or supply barges are typical examples of Barge Master applications.

Developed together with Bosch Rexroth and Marin maritime research institute, Barge Master provides :

    •    Increased safety during offshore lifting and supply operations
    •    Increased workability during offshore lifting and supply operations
    •    Flexible solution by using standard barges, cranes and vessels
    •    Low cost solution

Barge Master has built the first full scale platform, a 700mT system, ready for immediate commercial use, and is currently developing adapted versions of the Barge Master to accommodate different uses.
