With ongoing commitments AMWS' vessels are proving to be a preferred choice amongst contractors and project owners who recognise the need for vessels on which they can depend. The type leading multi purpose wind farm support vessels have been equipped with the latest technology and designed to transport personnel and equipment in comfort and safely to offshore wind turbines - close to shore as well as further offshore. They are specifically targeted at wind farm projects throughout Europe. New larger vessels coming on stream will be built to class to conform to other European member state rules, such as Germany. With the right type of vessel and fully trained experienced crew you can be sure all your requirements and safety needs will be met.
In 2011, Workships and Royal Doeksen set up the joint venture Offshore Wind Services B.V. (OWS) which acted as growth platform for the Offshore Wind business. In 2015, OWS was sold to Acta Marine. More information
