Our commitment to quality and maximum productivity is shown in the quote below from one of our current charterers Fluor, construction company of the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm.
“Windcat Workboats have operated to a high standard throughout the construction of the Greater Gabbard wind farm. The skippers and crews are highly skilled and professional operatives who will regularly go above and beyond their daily duties to achieve Fluors goals. There are many emerging companies offering wind farm transfer vessel services but I have found that what sets Windcat Workboats above other companies on project has been the 24/7 base management. The site managers and engineers are able to provide an unrivalled service that deals with all vessel issues in a timely manner ultimately maximizing vessel productivity. Their ethos and willingness to be flexible and work with the client to achieve operations is an attribute I wish most boat operators had.” Marine Manager – Fluor Limited
