Welcome to IJUBOA

Jack up barge ocean

The International Jack up Barge Operators Association was formed in 2008 with a mission to:

“to set, sustain and promote standards for the safe and effective operation of self elevating platforms throughout the world”

It 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.
