Integrated Wind Solutions ASA (IWS) has entered into a strategic collaboration with Havfram Wind, a prominent offshore wind installation company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, IWS Fleet AS, and IWS Fleet Management.
This partnership involves IWS providing technical management services for Havfram Wind's two offshore wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs) with a scheduled delivery in 2025. Specifically designed for installing turbines exceeding 300 meters in tip height and handling foundations weighing up to 3,000 tonnes in water depths of up to 70 meters, these WTIVs represent a significant advancement in offshore wind infrastructure.
As part of the collaboration, IWS and Havfram Wind will jointly own Havfram Fleet Management AS (HFM), where IWS will contribute management and technical resources. HFM will assume responsibility for the technical management of the WTIVs.
Integrated Wind Solutions ASA highlighted the shared technical expertise, anticipating substantial synergies from operating a diverse fleet across the offshore wind value chain. Additionally, IWS Fleet Management AS will continue to provide technical management services to two LNG carriers.
Christopher Andersen Heidenreich, COO of Integrated Wind Solutions ASA and Managing Director of IWS Fleet AS, expressed confidence in the collaboration, stating, "Our strategic partnership with Havfram Wind is a testament to our distinguished technical expertise and capabilities in the offshore wind sector. With this collaboration, along with our existing fleet, we are very motivated to deliver high-quality and efficient operations across the renewable energy landscape."
Havfram Wind's CEO, Even Larsen, emphasized the importance of high-quality technical management for the operational commencement of their fleet of Wind Turbine Installation Vessels. Larsen highlighted IWS's long history and proven track record in ship management of advanced assets as a perfect fit for Havfram Wind. He added, "In a broader perspective, this collaboration is yet another affirmation to our clients that Havfram Wind is going to deliver the highest quality of transport and installation services to the offshore wind industry."
