The company, which has supported the construction of close to 20 offshore wind farms over the last four years, has announced the appointment of Tim Smith as Sales Manager. Mr Smith joins CWind from Fendercare Marine, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, where he held the position of Business Development Manager for the past four years. His appointment to the new position at CWind will help drive the company’s expansion plans in the operations & maintenance field.


He will be responsible for building relationships with existing and potential clients in the UK and Germany, targeting specifically offshore O&M contracts for both vessels and technicians. CWind is already a leading provider of crew transfer vessels and technicians during the construction phase of and is keen to build on this and strengthen its presence in the O&M market.


Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director at CWind, said: “Tim knows our market very well given his many years in the industry. With him on board, we will be able to offer our services as turn-key or individual service packages to the recent spate of UK offshore wind farms coming online and which we helped to build. Since we have worked at most of them already we are in an excellent position to service them as well. “Tim has a very strong understanding of what the industry requires moving forward, he is highly focused on developing innovative solutions to help drive down the cost of offshore wind energy.


Tim Smith said: ”I am delighted to be joining the very dynamic team at CWind at this exciting time for the offshore wind industry; the company has grown sharply over the last few years, providing vessels and technicians to support the construction of wind farms in the North Sea. I’m looking forward to making a real impact for CWind in the O&M market. The development of standardized vessel classification is also an exciting project and one that I have a close personal interest in. CWind is committed to providing the best services in the industry and I am looking forward to taking this commitment to the next level.”
