Working together across the globe to build back better


As the world sharpens its focus on ‘building back better’, the expertise of our Renewables team is increasingly in demand from clients who wish to ‘pivot’ from the oil and gas industry into the rapidly growing offshore wind market.

Our Renewables teams in Oslo and Hamburg advised our client, traditionally a shipowner in the deepwater shipping/offshore and oil service segments, on how they might deliver construction, installation and maintenance services for the offshore wind industry.

We’ve been building our expertise in renewables for the last 20 years and we’re pleased to be using our local insights and global reach to help our clients to shape a more sustainable world.

Utilising the local knowledge of our Shanghai team, our client placed a newbuild order with a Chinese shipyard for two state-of-the-art zero-emission vessels which will efficiently support both the construction and maintenance phases of offshore wind farm operations.

Our Offshore team in Aberdeen worked with the Renewables teams as the chartering broker in the tender process to match our client with a requirement for a vessel to assist the construction of the world’s biggest offshore wind farm.

Clarksons Platou Securities in our Financial division supported the listing of our client’s subsidiary on Euronext Growth Oslo.

Our global network of offices and collective expertise enabled us to work in partnership with our client, from introducing them to the possibilities of renewables through to signing their first charter contract for one of the world’s most prestigious wind farm projects.
