Offshore wind will be extremely important to Red7Marine going forward, and the new Eurojack 3923 barge is seen as an ideal bridge to renewable energy industry, Nick Offord, Managing Director at Red7Marine, said.
The new barge is well suited for O&M applications on Round 1 and Round 2 offshore wind farms, Offord said.
Currently, Red7Marine is not planning to order any barges that could service the Round 3 farms, but the company will add a sister vessel of Eurojack 3923 to its fleet in the future, according to Offord.
‘’There is another barge in design at the moment. She is a 50 by 25 meter barge with approximately a 1,000 tonne capacity. She will likely have a pedestal crane, so if you like she is the next step, the all singing, all dancing O&M barge,’’ Offord said.
