Expertise Hub VIDEO: From 2002 Strategic Move to 30% of Turnover from Offshore Wind (Semco Maritime)

Semco Maritime has been working in offshore wind since 2002, so this was a strategic move made by the company a long time ago, according to Carsten Nielsen, Vice President Wind, Oil & Gas at Semco Maritime. Since it made the move, the company has been expanding its range of services and is now also eyeing non-European markets, same as a number of other European offshore wind players.

The company has been cooperating with Bladt Industries on the delivery of offshore substations, and has further expanded its services to substation maintenance, as well as offshore communication systems.

Together with Bladt, Semco Maritime has built one fourth of the offshore substations on the wind market and it came natural to offer service and maintenance work as well, the company stated last year after it was awarded a 5-year contract for full service and maintenance of the Nordsee One offshore wind farm’s substation.

Furthermore, at the beginning of this year, Semco Maritime and Systematic have entered into a framework agreement with Vattenfall for the delivery of a fully-integrated resource tracking and communication system for Vattenfall’s onshore and offshore wind operations.

Outside Europe, Semco Maritime has entered the Asia Pacific offshore wind market with the first contract to deliver the equipment for an offshore substation, and the company hopes the U.S. will be the next, according to Nielsen.
