Perhaps one of the most pressing issues that the offshore renewables industry faces at present is selecting the right vessel design and construction to fulfil the current and future needs of this growing market sector. Do you select a builder tied to a specific design, an off the shelf offering, or do you succeed with a bespoke design and build solution?
One company thinks that it might have the answer…

The future

By 2020, EWEA expects 192GW of wind turbines to be installed, representing an investment of between €90 billion and €124 billion. The leading markets are the UK, Germany, France, Poland and Italy and by 2020 354,000 people up from 253,000 in 2016 will be employed in the sector. Many of those people will need transportation from ports to offshore windfarms so innovation and cost-effective design and build solution is crucial. Moreover, these vessels are required to carry equipment to site, so there is now a design and build requirement for larger deck space, among many more future proofing requirements.

AMC has the capability to work with you, using leading edge technology & design, to sustain the future of your fleet.
