Exhibiting at the Marine and Coastal Civil Engineering Expo


The IJUBAO was formed when a group of barge operating companies met to discuss ways to improve the safety of the Jack Up Barge industry. It was agreed that in order to do this, common standards needed to be developed especially in two key areas:

The management of barge operations
The training and certification of barge masters.

Our mission has three strategic goals:

To promote a safe industry - safe for its people, for the environment and for society at large

To promote a learning industry - with the skilled and professional workforce essential for the safe and efficient operation of jack up barges

To promote a well run industry - responsive to the needs of its customers and committed to continuous improvement.

IJUBOA has completed a new Training Initiative in partnership with GMS of Abu Dhabi, STC of Rotterdam and the Scottish Qualification Authority. This course is open to existing marine personnel who have prior sea time experience and hold STCW and or BOSIET qualifications as pre-requisites for entrance for this qualification. The award by the SQA to successful candidates on this course is internationally recognised.

The other popular course on offer through IJUBOA is the jack up barge Manager`s Course. This three day course is aimed specifically at project/site managers involved in the either the procurement or the management of jack-up barges on live sites, this course takes place at DNV-GL offices in London.

To book places on either of our courses and for further information on the IJUBOA and membership please use contact us.
