Citing crew transfer services as an integral part of its offering, offshore wind industry service provider CWind announced it is now a member of the National Workboat Association
(NWA) of the U.K.
As the offshore wind industry matures and demands on workboat performance increase with larger and further offshore wind farms, a collective and informed industry body of vessel owners and operators will facilitate the knowledge sharing and formulation of best practice that will be required, CWind noted.
“The NWA has made firm headway in enabling our industry to share lessons learned,” said Bruce Clements, business development manager at CWind. “And beyond formulating guidelines and helping to shape the industry response, the NWA gives an important voice to us vis-à-vis regulators as well as clients. We’re looking forward to benefitting from and indeed contributing to the NWA.”
“CWind operates one of the largest fleets of offshore wind workboats in the U.K.,” said Mark Ranson, secretary to the NWA, “With their experience at 17 sites across the U.K. and Europe
, they will be a valuable contributor to our association.”
