Tidal Transit Wins ‘Small Growing Business’ Award
Tidal Transit has won the ‘Small Growing Business’ section of the 2014 Mayor’s Business Awards.
Tidal Transit is one of North Norfolk’s most vibrant small businesses, having built a fleet of three state of the art personnel transfer vessels [PTVs] which are currently on long-term charter to the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm. A fourth vessel, Kitty Petra, is scheduled to join Ginny Louise, Eden Rose and Tia Elizabeth in May 2014.
“In the space of three years, Tidal Transit has grown from being a small and thriving charter company into the very successful operation servicing offshore wind farms that it is today,” comments Leo Hambro, Commercial Director of Tidal Transit. “We saw the potential offered by the continued development of offshore wind energy in the North Sea, and have developed our business with this industry in mind. We have been finalists in The Mayor’s Business of the Year Award for two years running and we are very proud to have won the Small Growing Business section of the 2014 Mayor’s Business Awards.”
