James Fisher Marine Services Ltd. and ExtremeOcean Innovation Inc. sign market entry agreement for wind farm support vessel concept

James Fisher Marine Services Ltd (JFMS), part of James Fisher and Sons plc – a marine services provider in the U.K., today announced the signing of an exclusive market entry agreement with Canadian company ExtremeOcean Innovation Inc. (EOI), the designers of the TranSPAR craft. The arrangement will last for 12 months, with the option of a further 12-month extension.

ExtremeOcean Innovation Inc. is a marine technology company focused on developing marine solutions for the offshore market. Its TranSPAR Craft is a new solution to the problem of transferring operations and maintenance technicians to offshore wind turbines in harsh environments. Through participation in the Carbon Trust’s OWA competition, EOI has continued to refine the technology over the last three years.

TranSPAR uses scalable technology to reduce motion, increase safety and enable simplified connections. It can carry up to eight personnel (two operators, six technicians) and has a nine-knot in-field transit speed.

Martin Dronfield, business development director at James Fisher explained, “TranSPAR is an exciting and innovative development that is attracting attention across the industry. The concept fits very well with the ambition of JFMS to position itself at the very heart of the offshore renewables operations and maintenance market. It is also aligned well with our existing and emerging skill set, and is hugely complementary to our comprehensive support package, the Offshore Wind Management System (OWMS).”

TranSPAR will provide accessibility for round two and three offshore wind farm sites; it will connect in wave heights of up to three meters, and offers integration with existing boat landings. Performance has been proved by comprehensive model scale testing, and delivery of a full-scale prototype is due in mid 2015.
