Crosby Tugs and SEA.O.G Offshore, an integrated service provider to the offshore energy industry, have announced they are to merge
In a statement, the companies said they will focus on delivering installation support and operations and maintenance services for the US offshore wind industry.
“The offshore wind industry must ‘adapt and evolve,’ as we like to say,” said SEA.O.G. Offshore chief executive James Clouse. “That’s where we come in. We work to address the regulatory and operational challenges facing developers in this quickly evolving industry.”
In a statement, the companies said the partnership “allows SEA.O.G to combine its services with Crosby’s assets and experience to deliver low-cost and innovative solutions to the industry.”
Crosby Tugs director of special projects Aaron Guidry said, “The Crosby family of companies always finds a way of getting things done and we immediately recognised SEA.O.G Offshore had the same approach to solving problems.”
Crosby Tugs chief executive Kurt Crosby said, “We are looking forward to continuing to support the ever-changing energy market, and with the combined synergies, we are going to be in a better position to service our clients.”
Working together, Crosby and SEA.O.G Offshore plan to bring the ‘ADAPT’ feeder barge concept to the US offshore wind market. They describe it as a stable, semi-autonomous delivery and installation platform for wind turbine components, foundations, scour protection and cable-lay.
