Norwegian offshore wind specialist Fred Olsen Windcarrier has signed a cooperation agreement with Northern Offshore Services (NOS) to integrate its crew transfer vessels (CTVs) into the latter's existing management and organisation.

“NOS is a reputable, competent and highly experienced CTV owner and operator with a varied fleet of modern CTVs,” Fred Olsen Windcarrier chief executive Even Larsen said.

“Together with the Bayards [cruise ferries] and the competence and experience of Fred Olsen Windcarrier, the cooperation will further develop the service offered to the clients and allow Fred Olsen Windcarrier to focus our resources and investments into installation of offshore wind turbines and O&M.”
