    GeoSea to utilise Barge Master unit

    Vessel & ROV News // September 28, 2012

    GeoSea NV and Barge Master BV have signed an agreement for the testing and deployment of the first S700/C400 Barge Master platform.

    The S700/C400 Barge Master is a motion compensation platform that is said to compensate for up to 95 per cent of sea-induced motions.

    The platform can be installed on a supply vessel or barge and has a payload capacity of 700 tonnes.

    "Vessels equipped with a Barge Master platform are able to perform safer, quicker and under more adverse sea conditions," said the company.

    In August, the first Barge Master platform was installed on a flat top barge and is due to be fully tested in the North Sea.

    Subsequently, the platform will be used by GeoSea for various projects including offshore windfarm construction projects.
