Jack-Up Barge Grounds Off Denmark
A offshore wind farm jack-up barge has grounded in the North Sea off Denmark after its tow line parted in heavy weather.
Offshore wind market service provider A2SEA has confirmed that its jack-up barge Sea Worker ran aground early Wednesday morning off the coast of Nymindegab, south of Hvide Sande in Denmark.
The jack-up broke free from its tug in heavy weather during a transit to Esbjerg and began drifting towards shore.
All crew members onboard were evacuated by a lifeboat from Hvide Sande prior to grounding. No injuries were reported.
Sea Worker is a modern jack-up barge specially equipped to operate in the offshore wind sector, according to A2SEA’s website.
