A2SEA A/S has announced that it has acquired the Jumping Jack installation barge and related assets from Dutch offshore contractor Mammoet Van Oord B.V. for an undisclosed price.
The Jumping Jack is an installation barge of a type known as a "jack-up", specially designed to be used for offshore marine installations, foundations and topsides for wind turbines. The acquisition adds the Jumping Jack to A2SEA's fleet of two vessels and means that A2SEA can now also install the foundations as well as the topsides and larger turbines for offshore wind farms. Mammoet Van Oord will charter the Jumping Jack from A2SEA to complete Mammoet Van Oord's existing contracts. Together with the acquisition of the Jumping Jack the parties have agreed that A2SEA will be supported by Mammoet Van Oord to allow for a seamless transfer of competences.
