Barge Master contributes to the Successful First Feeder Operation for Vineyard Wind 1 Project in Collaboration with FOSS Maritime, Seaqualize, GE and DEME Offshore US

20 October 2023

The successful first feeder operation was accomplished in partnership with FOSS Offshore Wind, Seaqualize, GE and DEME Offshore US.

Barge Master’s cutting-edge motion compensation platforms played a pivotal role in maintaining the stability and safety of the tower sections for the GE Haliade X turbines. These platforms compensate the vessel motions ensuring that the tower sections remain steady throughout the lifting process. Together with Seaqualize’s heave compensation tool, which compensates for the vertical movements, both technologies combined result in a seamless and safe lifting operation, additionally increasing the weather window significantly.

This milestone not only advances the Vineyard Wind 1 project but also underscores Barge Master’s commitment to promoting U.S. content and collaboration within the industry.

"We are extremely proud of our team's exceptional performance in delivering a successful feeder operation for the Vineyard Wind 1 project," said Martijn Koppert, CEO of Barge Master. "This achievement showcases our expertise in motion compensation solutions and highlights the value of our collaboration with DEME and strong U.S. parties like FOSS. Together, we are contributing to the development of clean energy in the United States."
