Barge Master B.V.
Barge Master is a leading company in motion compensation systems for the offshore industry. Its systems increase the safety and workability of offshore operations by eliminating vessel motions. Barge Master develops, supplies and operates motion compensated cranes, platforms and gangways, which are deployed worldwide in all offshore fields.
Barge Master was founded on the determination to conquer weather downtime. As ‘downtime doctors’, we are dedicated to increasing workability at sea with innovative and practical solutions. We find those solutions in motion compensation systems.
We see motion compensation as the perfect technology to keep the load still, the equipment stable and the people safe. Our systems eliminate the need for bigger ships and provide a cost-effective solution for offshore operations. With motion compensation, working at sea becomes almost as easy as working on land.
Barge Master systems are developed in close cooperation with selected technology partners, such as Bosch Rexroth and our sister company Temporary Works Design (TWD). This cooperation allows us to ensure the highest quality in motion compensation systems.
The innovative nature of the Barge Master concept is recognized by the European patent office, industry specialists and the Dutch Government through its innovations-office and several innovation awards.
