PSA Marine to expand into Europe offshore wind market

PSA Marine to expand into Europe offshore wind market
PSA Marine, a subsidiary of Singapore global terminal operator PSA International, has partnered with Njord Offshore for crew transfer vessel services for the European offshore wind market.

The move into Europe’s increasingly competitive offshore wind market represents a relatively new area for towage specialist PSA Marine, which operates mostly in the Asia-Pacific region and Indian subcontinent.

Under the deal, PSA Marine’s subsidiary Ventus Marine will make its fleet of DNV GL-classed 21 and 26 m crew transfer vessels (CTVs) available to Njord for commercial management in European offshore wind farm sites. The 26 m CTVs, each with four Volvo engines and IPS pod drives, are designed for a high bollard pull, allowing good seakeeping in rough weather conditions.

“We are excited about the growth opportunities in Europe’s offshore renewable energy market,” said Peter Chew, PSA Marine md. “This partnership reflects PSA Marine’s ambition to grow its marine portfolio and establish a presence in Europe’s offshore wind market.”
