PSG Marine & Logistics and Sarens form Scottish offshore wind JV
PSG Marine & Logistics and Sarens have joined forces to provide services to the offshore wind and renewables sector across Scotland.
Sarens brings to the table its equipment, value engineering, one of the world’s largest inventories of cranes, transporters, and specialty rigging equipment. It will also provide its creative and intelligent solutions to today’s heavy lifting and engineered transport challenges.
PSG Marine & Logistics, based at the deep water facilities at Port of Cromarty Firth, are providers of support services to a diverse range of energy industry customers. PSG already has a track record of delivering complex logistical, marine, heavy lift and transport, port marshalling, and assembly projects to the fast growing offshore wind sector.
The JV will offer heavy lift and transport solutions, load in/out, assembly and port marshalling services to clients who require support to successfully and safely complete their projects in the renewable energies.
Commenting on the JV, Carl Sarens, director technical solutions said, “We are looking forward to make this JV a success in the fast growing offshore market, where the combination of our heavy lifting and heavy transport expertise, together with PSG’s marshalling capacity and access to deep water quaysides, will bring an added value to the market.”
Sarens PSG’s managing director Steve Clark remarked, “We are extremely pleased to form this joint venture with the reference player in global heavy lift and transport. Having access to Sarens market leading heavy crane & SPMT fleet, engineering capability and the Sarens giant ring crane fleet, will enable Sarens PSG to provide clients with the most comprehensive offering of heavy lift, transport, assembly, load in / out and port marshalling services currently available in Scotland. The world class facilities at Invergordon and the Cromarty Firth are ideally located for the Scottish offshore Wind sector project execution. However, the JV is looking for opportunities at all the Marshalling facilities around Scotland. Sarens PSG has been specifically incorporated to support the rapidly developing offshore wind market and assist in solving some of the current issues around heavy lift capacity, deployment and WTG integration, as the Scottish market scales up to floating wind commercialisation and the Scotwind project build-out”
Port of Cromarty Firth CEO Bob Buskie added that the joint venture will deliver an extensive heavy lift design and implementation capability together with a broad range of transport and logistics support services to customers in the fixed and floating offshore wind market who plan to use the Port of Cromarty Firth as their manufacturing, marshalling, storage, and integration hub. “This new capability will broaden and strengthen the supply chain capability across the whole of the Port of Cromarty Firth and will support our customers’ commercial contracting frameworks extremely well,” Buskie concluded.
