Jack-Up Barge B.V. located in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands, is a worldwide well known supplier of Jack-Up Barges and is specialized in the manufacturing, sales and rental of standard and modular self elevating platforms. Additionally sister companies World Wide Equipment, PVE Cranes and Dieselko offer a wide range of floating and foundation equipment like crane barges, tug boats, anchors, hydraulic pile driving hammers and crawler cranes. The company has a leading position in the offshore wind market where the Jack-Up Barges are used to install wind farms.
Project Jack-Up Barge 117 Jack-Up Barge 117 is the answer on the high market need for installing offshore wind farms. Earlier successfully launched barges like JB-114 and JB-115 showed that there is an increasing demand for bigger Barges which are able to assist high capacity wind turbines. With a free deck area of 2,500 m² and a crane capacity of 1,000 tons the JB-117 is a really large, multi-functional side-table capable of moving and installing large wind turbines.
One of the challenges Jack-Up Barge was facing is the maintenance of the light fixtures offshore.
Lighting installations often require a lot of maintenance due to the tough environment offshore according to Mr Hugo Cramer Technical Manager of Jack-Up Barge. Typical problems we are facing are (salt) water in the fixtures which are causing a lot of problems on the electronics and therefore the 100% availability of the light sources. Another additional problem is often accessibility of the light sources for revamping, replacing internal parts et cetera.
Technical Benelux proposed their TNAML® maintenance free fluorescent luminaire. This range of fluorescent luminaires is 100% encapsulated (IP68) and maintenance free during lifetime. The lifetime of the TNAML® series is 80.000 hours on the complete system without the need of relamping or exchanging parts. There is no need for a detailed inspection, a visual inspection is sufficient. Besides that the TNAML® series offers 10 years operational warranty and therefore assures favourable total cost of ownership. Charles Boekhout Account manager at Technor Benelux says: we are proud that Jack-Up Barge has chosen TNAML® maintenance free lighting for the JB-117 project and we are really looking forward to strengthen our future relationship with them.
We did create a win-win position for both companies.
