Dutch subsea services provider N-Sea has opened a new office in Germany to help it keep up with the “exponential” growth rate of the country’s renewables market.
N-Sea will use the new base in Stralsund to provide maintenance and repair services for wind farms.
N-Sea chief operating officer Roddy James said: “In order to meet the increasing needs of the German offshore renewable market and service our clients to the optimum degree it was essential to establish a permanent presence in the area. The market is growing at an exponential rate as the German government investigates renewable energy options to supply its national grid.
“N-Sea’s field personnel and management teams have accrued a significant array of expertise and experience in delivering the relevant services to the European renewables sector, with an extensive portfolio of experience in both the German and Dutch energy sectors.”
Business development manager Jörg Butgen will spearhead the establishment and growth of N-Sea’s services and products in the region.
Mr James said: “Jörg brings over 30 years of invaluable experience, having held several high-level industry positions, including head of marine operations and diving superintendent for Bard Offshore. His knowledge of the region and its renewable marketplace will prove indispensable, as we support our customers through our specialist solutions.”
