The Dutch C-Job Naval Architects and Seattle-based Glosten have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the United States with an aim of contributing to the offshore wind market.
According to the two naval architecture firms, the partnership will deliver optimized technical teams with increased value across a range of ship designs including offshore energy service vessels, research vessels and dredging vessels.
“We've been looking to expand our operations and follow our American Dream. We’re excited to have found a partner in Glosten, well-known in the American Maritime industry, who share the same vision and values as C-Job. We look forward to what our joint future will bring," said Basjan Faber, CEO of C-Job.
The companies said their combined track record and suite of services are complementary, focusing on naval architecture, noise control engineering, sustainable propulsion, numerical modeling, construction supervision, marine construction design, interior and detail/production design, as well as marine, structural and electrical engineering.
“This is an important step in formalizing what has already been a fruitful relationship over the past several months,” said Glosten President Morgan Fanberg. “It is encouraging to see the work we can accomplish together. We look forward to offering these complementary skills to our industry partners around the globe."
