Jack Up Barge (JUB) has successfully completed a support and supply contract for the hook-up and commissioning of two offshore platforms at the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm.
This wind park is part of Denmark’s strategy to become independent of fossils fuels. For this project JUB mobilised the self-elevating jack-up vessel JB-115, marking the company’s first contract with clients Energinet and 50Hertz, the respective national grid operators in Denmark and Germany.
JUB carried out modifications to two key aspects of the JB-115 in order to make it ‘project-ready’. This involved the installation of a second access gangway to provide personnel access to the nearest topside. Additional accommodation modules with twin-bed cabins, complete with own bathroom, Wi-Fi, TV and effective sound insulation were also installed meeting Danish standards.
Other notable features of the JB-115 that came into play during the project were the 300-tonne crane and the 1,000 m2 of deck space for client supplies and equipment. The vessel’s offshore certified helideck was also used by the client to transfer personnel to the second, more distant platform.
