Offshore Wind Accelerator - 2012 update

Fjellstrand, one of the 13 access companies we have been supporting over the last 12 months from our Access Competition has achieved a major and exciting milestone - they have received an order for six vessels.  

All six vessels will enter services in 2013 for major wind farm operators. In 2011, the Fjellstrand WindServer was announced as one of 13 shortlisted concepts (from a total of 450 entries) of the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) access competition. The competition aimed to identify and develop new access systems to dramatically improve the availability of turbines and the safety of people during the transfer to turbines.
