Recent yeas have seen a significant growth in ships working with offshore, and EU-flagged offshore vessels now account for 37 percent of the world's offshore fleet measured by tonnage. This development now makes the European Community Shipowners' Associations, ECSA, include offshore vessels - such as cable service ships and supply ships servicing, for instance, the offshore wind industry - in its portfolio.

"In light of this meteoric rise, the European Community Shipowners' Associations decided to set up the "ECSA Sectoral Contact Group on Service and Offshore Support Vessels", which shall cover all EU policy issues relevant to this booming shipping sector, ranging from state aid and safety issues to social protection," says the ECSA in a press release.
