CWind Expands Offshore Wind Offering with Power Cable Services
Colchester-based offshore wind services provider CWind will incorporate the resources of its parent company Global Marine Systems Limited Group to add power cable installation and maintenance solutions to its offering.
CWind currently provides services including blade repair, corrosion protection, topside and subsea inspections and maintenance, cable pull-ins and temporary power supply.
By adding the new power cable capabilities, CWind says the company can manage and deliver entire cable packages covering the lifecycle of an offshore wind farm, from the feed stage with detailed desk top studies and route surveys, through to the installation and protection of cables.
“With Global Marine, CWind now has access to additional technical resources to pursue its growth strategy with confidence,” said Lee Andrews, Managing Director for Power, CWind.
“The combined power of Global Marine and CWind will position us to continue to grow and service our customers with an even more diverse offering.”
CWind will be responsible for all aspects of the power related business both in the UK and internationally.The current team will now be bolstered with proposal and subsea engineers, as well as project managers from parent company Global Marine.
The company will have access to a larger pool of assets within this extended offering including the C.S. Sovereign, a vessel which has installed almost 400 inter-array cables globally, as well as CWind’s existing fleet of 17 crew transfer vessels.
CWind will also have access to an array of subsea equipment, including the Q1000 jet trenching remotely operated vehicle.
