Norwegian offshore vessel owner and operator Island Offshore has made a new appointment to lead its ongoing push into the walk-to-work market
Trond Skodjevåg Bø joins the company’s chartering and sales team from Wavefoil. He previously worked for Ulstein Group. In his new role he will focus on developing the company’s walk-to-work business.
“Island Offshore has a significant presence in the walk-to-work market and a clear ambition to expand,” said the company. “We currently have four vessels in this market, of which two are working in the offshore wind industry. We are now strengthening our chartering and sales team to service the offshore wind market.”
Island Offshore’s first step into the walk-to-work segment was in 2013, with the delivery of Island Crown. Since then, Island Offshore has expanded its foothold in the market with several vessels providing support to both offshore windfarms and offshore oil and gas installations.
“Island Crown was initially ordered as a platform supply vessel (PSV), however, a new potential market emerged during construction of the vessel,” said Island Offshore. “The vessel was therefore converted to a walk-to-work and subsea construction vessel and has worked for many different companies in the offshore wind industry.”
