The one team approach

Jackup Barges

Through its associate company JackUp GB Limited (JUGB), the company is able to provide a range of heavy construction jackup and floating barges for charter, including the 1300t JU barge Buzzard, 600t JU barge Commander and the 400t JU barge Admiral I, providing an integrated service enabling clients to deliver their projects in a safe, controlled and stable manner across numerous remote over-water fluvial, estuarine and coastal locations.

Key to all JUGB’s operations is its focus on vital pre-engineering and planning, and it is through such engineering that JUGB is able to ensure the safety and operational success at all times to those working from our vessels.

For all projects requiring such specialist jackup vessels, while engineering plays a key role in proving methodology and safe ground conditions on which to jack and operate the vessels, it is equally important that all our engineers, mobilisation staff, and operatives alike buy in to our culture of safety and value.  Because of this requirement and the desire to lead by example, JUGB’s management are founder members of the International Jackup Barge Owners Association (IJUBOA) and therefore it is mandatory for all operatives to undergo formal training under the IJUBOA’s competency scheme as part of our teams’ continued professional development.  For further details please visit
