SAFE Boats International in the US has signed a partnership agreement with Diverse Marine in the UK
For the past three years SAFE Boats has been working with Diverse Marine promoting SAFE Boat designs in European markets. The new arrangement brings Diverse Marine’s crew transfer vessel (CTV) designs and experience to the US offshore wind market.
Diverse Marine director Ben Colman said, “We are delighted to have completed the partnership agreement with SAFE Boats International. Under the agreement we will share our designs and lend marketing and production support to SAFE Boats for constructing CTVs and other vessels in our portfolio.
“We have worked with SAFE Boats for a number of years in the UK and have established a strong relationship in many sectors. Our hope is we can share our experience to reduce costs for CTVs in the emerging American market.”
SAFE Boats chief executive Richard Schwarz said, “Signing this agreement is an exciting step in our drive to bring class-leading designs and industry expertise to US offshore wind.
“SAFE Boats and Diverse Marine both have long histories of delivering robust, reliable solutions for government and commercial customers.
“The agreement brings the complementary experience of our companies to the emerging US offshore wind market. It is the next step in our ongoing relationship with Diverse Marine and a continuation of our efforts to partner with leading designers and builders around the world.”
