Using feeder barges to supply wind turbine components to precious offshore installation vessels seems like a no brainer. But why shuttle cargo with your most expensive and time-critical piece of equipment? While becoming more common practice in near shore and benign environments, the industry has yet to reach consensus on how this can be practically achieved in the global market. Minor changes in the details can make or break your workability or introduce unacceptable risk into your campaign. The US market highlights the need for practical solutions to barge feedering which can be applied to global markets to support the current and future appetite of offshore renewables. The Feeder Alliance is a collaboration of innovative companies looking to provide a detailed, innovative approach to barge feedering.
Emerging technologies from Seaqualize, Eager.one and Next Ocean are combined with the operational footprint and local industry know how of Sea of Gravity. Resulting in a highly sophisticated joint operability and weather downtime analysis delivered by our teams. While using state of the art motion response analysis along with actual hindcast data from the Vineyard Wind lease area.
