Barge Master has received a Letter of Award from Niestern Sander bv for employment of the Barge Master motion compensated crane on their new Walk-to-Work vessel, to be built for Wagenborg. The vessel including the Barge Master system will be ready in the first half of 2015. NAM will use the motion compensated crane to service and maintain gas production platforms in the North Sea.

Oil and gas platforms have become smaller and more flexible during the last forty years. They no longer have a resident crew or helicopter pads which means frequent journeys to and from the platform by ship in order to perform maintenance work.With the new Walk-to Work Vessel these operations can be executed in a safer, more efficient and effective manner. The Vessel is unique because multiple functions are combined for the first time. The vessel can accommodate 20 crewmembers and 40 service technicians, chemicals can be stored and transferred safely, and thanks to the T40 Barge Master system materials can be transferred during wave heights of up to 3 meters. Through utilizing new technology, NAM is able to safely continue harvesting gas on the North Sea with an extended weather window and less down time.

Barge Master develops and produces wave compensation platforms for the marine and offshore industry. The Barge Master T40 is capable of compensating an offshore knuckle boom/telescopic boom crane with a capacity of 15mT.The servicing of wind turbines or unmanned oil rigs are typical applications of the Barge Master T40. The system is based on the same principle as the Barge Master T700: roll, pitch and heave are compensated, while surge, sway and yaw are fixated. The T40 is developed together with Bosch Rexroth.
