NorSea Group has set up an offshore wind company, NSG Wind A/S, in Denmark, which can deliver the full range of offshore wind industry services. The company says it has already won orders in several countries, including Denmark, Germany, the U.K. and Taiwan.

“European offshore wind markets continue to grow, and the markets in Asia and North America are mushrooming,” says John E. Stangeland, CEO of NorSea Group.

“There is, therefore, a growing need for the palette of services the NorSea Group has built over the past 50 years, including seabed investigation, transport cable inspection, onshore and offshore logistics, installation, service and maintenance – as well as specially designed vessels and other offshore equipment. Given the market situation, staking on offshore wind is an obvious step for us to take,” he adds.

The new Danish offshore company will ensure that the group can develop and provide versatile services for offshore wind customers – among them, operators, wind turbine manufacturers and sub-suppliers.

“Via its subsidiary company, ØER A/S, NSG Wind already has several large clients within installation, service and maintenance of offshore turbines in Denmark, Germany and the U.K.,” says Morten Basse, CEO of NSG Wind.

“In partnership with the Taiwanese authorities, we are working on a port development project and are in the process of establishing a joint venture company with a local partner. We have also signed agreements on the U.S. and Canadian markets,” Basse continues. “We have not turned our backs on the Danish market: We have two major offshore wind farms in the pipeline, which are patently obvious projects for us.”

The team, represented in Denmark, France and Norway, includes specialists in subsea, port service, transport and logistics, marine services, installation, and pre-assembly, as well as wind turbine operations and maintenance services.
