Barge Master’s motion compensation platforms were deployed to maintain the stability and safety of the tower sections of the GE Haliade X turbines. The platforms compensate the vessel motions ensuring that the tower sections remain steady throughout the lifting process.   

Together with Seaqualize’s heave compensation tool, which compensates for the vertical movements, both technologies result in a safe lifting operation, additionally increasing the weather window significantly. 

The Vineyard Wind 1 project, located off the coast of Massachusetts, will consist of 62 GE Haliade X turbines.
