Industry Database

UK based Ventus Workboats has evolved its market offering to add inland and coastal, offshore medical and logistics to its portfolio and has changed its name to Ventus Marine Services.

The name change better takes into account how the company has grown since its inception four years ago by Matthew Lane, a former Royal Marine with over 13 years’ experience in the marine and renewables industry.

"This is a proud moment for us all and really the result of honest, hard graft in a tough industry,” said Matthew Lane, founder, Ventus Marine Services

“I am delighted that the experience we have gained now means that we can take care of a wider range of marine business for our customers, leaving them free to focus on their own core objectives and goals."

Strong background

After Matthew left the forces he offered specialist vessel design consultancy on a number of projects and developed a strong partnership with an industry leader in CTVs (Crew Transfer Vessels).

Ventus Workboats was originally established with a vessel, crew and project management remit, running its own, multi-purpose workboats on offshore projects around Northern Europe.

Since then, the company has managed and collaborated on numerous demanding projects, gradually adding and more to the range of marine services that it can now offer the marine industry.

The company is ISO 9001 certified and a member of the National Workboat Association. The company can also provide IMCA's Common Marine Inspection (CMID) and Marine Inspections of Small Workboats (MISW) audits.
