A star is born
CWind began as a spin-off of CTruk Group, founded by local entrepreneur Andy White. At the time, he declared that establishing CWind was not just about meeting the needs of the new wind farm industry, but also about regenerating the local seafaring community, a strategy that had worked well in other areas of the UK where offshore wind farms were being built.
CWind’s first contract was with DONG Energy and since then, the operation has expanded to serve multiple clients and projects in the North Sea, Irish Sea and Baltic Sea. Stepping up the pace, 2014 saw the company enter the German market with a new office based in Bremen.
Initially, CWind focused exclusively on offshore wind, allowing us to become recognised experts in the field, and giving us a unique ability to team up our highly skilled, well-trained and proven project solutions with flexible, multi-tasking and fuel-efficient vessels. Today, our skills and resources are available for both off- and onshore wind farm projects.
Where to now?
We’re ambitious about what more we can do to support our clients’ successes, Global Marine Systems Ltd’s acquisition of a majority stake in CWind in February 2016, extends our ability to do so. Global Marine’s range of installation and maintenance services complements our own offering and we have the management skills and financial backing to deliver on our ambitions.
