Norsta Ship Supply — the service provider to the marine and offshore sector, is pleased to announce the news that our Principal for motion-compensated outfitting has proven successful. (the Dutch company Barge Master B.V.) has been awarded a contract with Equinor, for the use of their motion compensated platform, the BM-T700
The platform will be used as a safe and stable feeder base for a coiled tubing reel. By using the BM-T700 platform, Equinor is able to perform the operation safely and efficient by increasing the lifting weather window by compensating the vessel motions.
This result has been achieved by a highly-skilled Barge Master team, headed in Rotterdam, and with Norsta Ship Supply, as sales representatives in Norway.
“We see this contract as a statement that Barge Master brings both value and quality into the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), meeting specific market needs. As such, by reducing costs, increasing both operational safety, and efficiency. With our equipment portfolio that we bring to the market, we do see both short, and long term opportunities in several segments on the NCS as well” says, CEO of Norsta Ship Supply, Tommy Nilsen.
The Barge Master motion compensated platform has the capacity to stabilize 700 tons, of either equipment or cargo, up to Hs 2.5 meters. The system is completely containerized and can be mobilized easily on any barge or vessel, to serve as a stable working base.
