Class-leading OESV operator invests in personnel and moves into new Isle of Wight HQ as it prepares for ramp-up in offshore wind construction   9th January 2017, Isle of Wight – Class-leading offshore energy service vessel (OESV) operator, Seacat Services, has invested heavily in its operational team and logistical support infrastructure, based on the Isle of Wight. Ahead of the major offshore wind construction phase beginning in April this year, the business has moved into a new purpose-designed headquarters in Cowes and continued to strengthen its support team.   The investment represents a further commitment to supporting local industry on the Isle of Wight, in conjunction with successful regional training initiatives and an ongoing, highly productive six-year relationship with local boat builder South Boats IoW. The new facility in Cowes has been part-funded by a grant from regional development agency, the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), and will help to further enhance the opportunities provided by the regional offshore wind supply chain.   With a number of high-profile multi-gigawatt offshore wind developments poised to enter construction from April 2017, the industry is preparing for a prolonged period of heightened activity. Keeping installation schedules on track for the largest offshore wind farms in the world to date will demand the highest standards of availability and versatility from the UK and wider European supply chains
