A2Sea benefits from wind order influx

Windmill carriers are cheering following the latest large order by the windmill industry. A2Sea tells ShippingWatch that the continuing influx of orders is extremely positive.

First it was Swire, and now A2Sea is the one to receive the large order from Dong Energy with open arms. Not long ago, A2Sea was pointing to overcapacity as the biggest challenge in the market, but right now there is nothing but joy that the Danish energy company has decided to construct two new offshore wind farms, for a total value of USD 2.9 billion.

"We're very pleased about these new orders that are continuously pouring in from the offshore wind industry, most recently with Dong's announcement of the Gode Wind 1 and 2 projects in Germany. We keep a close eye on the announcements and the market, so that we can offer our services where it makes sense and where we can contribute value via our experience and our track record, and A2Sea will of course strive to be at the top of the mind of those who make the final decision about who gets to transport and install the windmills," A2Sea CEO Jens Frederik Hansen tells ShippingWatch.
