Proven designs head to US market

The US domestic offshore wind market is burgeoning rapidly, making it very timely for a new formal Partnership Agreement which will see Diverse Marine's proven Crew Transfer Vessel designs and experience.

For the past three years Diverse Marine has been working with SAFE Boats promoting SAFE Boat designs in European markets. The new quid-pro-quo will see Diverse Marine designs in position to take advantage of the Biden Administration’s call to build a clean energy economy. This commitment was emphasized in May of this year with the administration’s final approval of Vineyard Wind, the first US industrial-scale offshore wind project.

Ben Colman, Director of Diverse Marine states, “We are delighted to have completed the partnership agreement with SAFE Boats International. Under the agreement we will share our designs and lend marketing and production support to SAFE Boats for construction principally of offshore wind crew transfer vessels but can be extended to any vessel on our portfolio.

“We have worked with SAFE Boats for a number of years now in the UK and have established a strong relationship in many sectors. Our hope is we can share our experience to reduce the first of class production costs for CTV’s in the emerging American market.”

Richard Schwarz, CEO of SAFE Boats said, “The signing of this partnership agreement is an exciting step in our drive to bring class-leading designs and industry expertise to US offshore wind. SAFE Boats and Diverse Marine both have long histories of delivering robust, reliable solutions for government and commercial customers around the globe.

“This agreement now brings the complementary experience of our two industry-leading companies to the emerging US offshore wind market. Our combined experience and shared values create a unique opportunity to bring Diverse Marine’s proven CTV designs and experience to the US. This agreement is the next step in our ongoing relationship with Diverse Marine and a continuation of our efforts to partner with leading designers and builders around the world.”

The new partnership enables both companies to formally continue their collaboration in pursuit of emerging offshore wind vessel opportunities.
