A2Sea: We sell ourselves on knowledge and experience

2013 has been a solid year with several milestones so far for A2Sea. But fewer projects in the second half of 2014 and in 2015 together with a growing number of competitors means more challenging negotiations for the important contracts.

The first half of 2013 was good, bringing several milestones for the Danish wind mill carrier A2Sea. But at the same time, the shipping company operates in a market that, for parts of 2014 and all of 2015, will bring fewer contracts and increased competition for those contracts.

"The year has gone well so far. We've been busy completing a project on the island of Anholt, which we wrapped up with great success in May. That was the biggest offshore wind mill project ever in Denmark, so that in itself is a milestone. We're also well underway with three ships working full time for the rest of the year in the Irish Sea. So in terms of performance, it's gone pretty much as we expected," says Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO of A2Sea, to ShippingWatch.
