Dutch engineering design firm Fusie Engineers has teamed up with its heavy transport and freight forwarding compatriot Q3 Heavy Lift to design a flattop barge. According to the two companies, the 140 metres by 40 metres flattop barge is tailored for transporting heavy cargo for offshore wind projects in Taiwan. 

For Q3 Heavy Lift, known for its service in heavy cargo logistics, the move is a step toward meeting the growing demand for renewable energy infrastructure transport.

Currently, Q3 Heavy Lift is actively engaging in discussions for financing this venture and liaising with multiple shipyards. Together, the two companies aim to set new benchmarks in marine engineering, leveraging Q3 Heavy Lift’s decades of expertise in handling complex logistics and Fusie Engineers’ innovative design techniques.
