Many ports around the UK and European coasts have earned a deal of cash serving the construction phase of this business and subsequently the servicing of major offshore sites.
David McNamee found the 1800 ton lift capacity Fairpartner 15,069,’04/5 in Morecambe Bay waiting to enter Barrow with cores for new turbines for the big field off Walney.
Up at Workington the construction period for the Robin Rigg site which has been a bonanza for the port is ending but the Penzance registered workboat Terramare 1 of ‘Offshore Marine Solutions’ is shuttling across constantly, weather permitting, with gear and sometimes crew.
Offshore Marine Solutions Ltd evolved from Pendrik Diving Services in ’04 having worked internationally including on the Oresund Bridge and on three large wind farm projects, the Horns Rev off Denmark, Arklow Bank off Ireland and the Kentish Flats.
Their current landing craft workboat of 115gt, Terramare 1 is very versatile with twin props and Daewoo motors.
