AqualisBraemar is set to ramp up its ports and harbors unit and combine resources and know-how with its offshore wind consultancy unit OWC.
“We have offered port development and associated marine services for several years. However, as the surge in offshore renewable developments has breathed new life into many new ports around the world, we are adapting our ports and harbors business to meet these requirements. Our objective is to recruit and grow this team considerably going forward.”Captain David Faulkner, head of ports & harbors services at AqualisBraemar.
A significant increase in offshore wind developments has resulted in numerous ports currently undergoing, or planning to undergo, modification and upgrading work to position themselves for the rapidly growing green investment wave.
To provide operators of ports and harbors, vessel owners and operators plus civil engineering consultants in charge of port modifications with the best competence available, AqualisBraemar’s ports and harbors team will be able to draw upon the offshore wind expertise from sister company OWC, which is a dedicated offshore wind consultancy business.
“We are able to combine specialist ports and harbors competence with expert offshore wind competence. We believe this is an unbeatable combination for anyone involved with renewable energy harbor developments.”David Faulkner.
OWC is an independent technical advisor, engineering, and project management consultancy to the offshore renewables sector. Since its inception in 2011, OWC has been involved in a total of 58 GW of offshore wind projects worldwide.
“It is great to see that offshore wind is increasingly creating positive ripple effects onshore. Together with AqualisBraemar’s ports and harbors unit, we can help ports identify exactly what they need in order to provide the ideal platform to support offshore renewables developments.”Will Cleverly, managing director of OWC.
