Recently Wagenborg Barge 5 left The Netherlands to assist one of world’s major dredging companies during a pipeline replacement project in the United Kingdom. Wagenborg Barge 5 is equipped with accommodation facilities for 120 people and will remain on site for at least 3 months. Additionally the flattop Wagenborg Barge 1 will support during the project.
The major challenges during the mobilization process were delivery in time and compliance with the regulations. In a mobilization period of only 4 weeks Wagenborg Barge 5 was converted from a flat top barge into a fully operational accommodation pontoon suitable to accommodate 120 persons. With the assistance of Holland Shipyards and the classification authorities, Wagenborg managed to deliver the barge to the clients full satisfaction within the set deadline.
By bringing together various kinds of expertise within the Wagenborg Group, Royal Wagenborg provided her client a comprehensive package of additional services, such as the ballasting crew, operational crew for the accommodation pontoon and compliance with the applicable regulations.
