WaveWalker BV returns to M&CCE Expo

Exhibitors

WaveWalker BV provides innovative marine solutions from land to sea. The company’s industry-first, eight-legged walking jack-up barge, WaveWalker 1 is capable of safely operating bi-directional movement whilst elevated. This allows the jack-up to walk over the seabed and relocate without floating, thus eliminating the restrictions that come with conventional jack-up barges.

WaveWalker 1 is designed especially for marine operations in rough seas, surf, intertidal and shallow transition zones, ecologically sensitive areas, and on beaches. It offers safety, flexibility and efficiency when carrying out marine operations in those areas typically affected by such weather and tides.

It can increase the productivity of a variety of conventional jack-up operations such as geotechnical site investigation, drilling and blasting, trenching, pipeline and cable laying, marine construction and pile installation, offshore windfarm operations and maintenance and other marine and underwater work. These are all areas where floating equipment or conventional jack-ups would experience extensive delays due to weather downtime, site access issues due to shallow water depths, as well as the safety implications of operating floating equipment in nearshore, large swell locations.

WaveWalker 1 is also of sufficient size to support live aboard applications, increasing operational productivity and reducing crew change downtime periods.

Additionally, WaveWalker 1’s ability to relocate in position, without the use of supporting tugs, can allow for the client to reduce their project programme, risk and cost.

Since WaveWalker 1 was launched the vessel has won multiple industry awards for innovation and has been deployed on a series of successful projects proving walking is the way forward!

A remarkable example of the WaveWalker 1 in action was a recent deployment on a UK marine infrastructure project which included walking up the beach. The vessel walked an impressive ten kilometres over the total duration of the project.

Visitors to the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo can examine a 1:50 scale model of the eight-legged jack-up and discover the full range of services on offer from WaveWalker BV, from jack-up charter operations to full turnkey packages benefitting from in-house design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities.

Helen Popperwell, WaveWalker BV says, “WaveWalker BV is pleased to be returning to the M&CCE Expo for a third year. We are excited for this year’s show which is co-located alongside Seawork, bringing together the innovative products, solutions and services in the marine and civil engineering industry.”
