THE UK’S LARGEST BARGE FLEET
A large barge fleet is good – knowing how to use those barges for innovative solutions, is better.
The range of vessels we have lets us supply solutions for almost any project. We have ocean-going barges, which we’ve used deep-sea from Europe to Africa and South America, and we have smaller vessels that can use the inland waterways and lock systems throughout the UK and Europe.
- Cargo transport
- Storage platforms
- Crane and construction platforms
- RORO loadout
- Temporary landing facilities
- Floating and moveable concrete batching plant
It’s not just the size of our fleet, it’s how we use our badges to your advantage. You can see our approach here – innovative solutions to what might otherwise be project-challenging problems.
We also excel at specialised projects, such as interconnecting four barges within one of the largest vessels in the world – Allsea’s Pioneering Spirit catamaran hull – to provide the platform for a theatre and marquees for the vessel’s naming ceremony. Engineered and assembled in weeks and safe for 1,000 people.
We’re also the only UK barge owner and operator that’s transported every major component of an Offshore Windfarm, including foundations (monopiles, transition pieces and jackets), towers, nacelles and blades, and offshore cables. All by barge, all on time and on budget.
The way we work, it’s a seamless transition. We’ve been successfully transporting critical cargoes for the renewable energy, oil and gas, and power industries for years. Port-to-port, port-to-offshore, offshore-to-onshore – factory to foundation.
Our team is super-connected and well-respected. Our in-house expertise gives you access to every conceivable form of multi-modal transport, which means we can offer everything from straightforward cable storage to complex offshore scheduling and seabed installations – and if we don’t have a solution today, then we’ll create one tomorrow. It’s all part of our standard approach, finding the right way to deliver your project on time and on budget. It’s the Osprey Way of Working.
