wind feeder vessel HuismanHuisman has introduced a motion compensated platform to transfer wind turbine components from a feeder vessel. Since using an internationally flagged wind turbine installation vessel is restricted under the Jones Act, a feeder vessel with a motion compensated platform offers a solution for transportation of components in US waters.
 
The motion compensated platform provides a stable deck area because it actively counterbalances the effects of vessel motions. This means that lifting heavy components and moving an empty jack-up vessel can be done in more severe weather conditions. The dimensions and capacities of the motion compensated platform are designed to compensate for five degrees of vessel motions. The motion compensated platform can be integrated into the hold of a vessel and aligned with the main deck, making it easy to skid cargo across the platform.
