GRS Global Renewables Shipbrokers, OWS Off-Shore Wind Solutions and A1 Offshore Solutions announce the Sale of the DP2 Walk-to-Work Vessel OCEAN ZEPHYR

Wednesday, 5 April, 2017 - 10:45

GRS has developed and arranged the sale of OCEAN ZEPHYR (incl. Ampelmann A Type) from Emden based OWS Off-Shore Wind Solutions to Denmark based A1 Offshore Solutions. The delivery took place on the 24th of March 2017 in Emden and the vessel will continue a charter for a German Wind Farm under its well-known name OCEAN ZEPHYR.

The OCEAN ZEPHYR is the first DP2 Walk-to-Work Vessel in the fleet of A1 Offshore Solutions. Her long solid track record and proven capability over the last four years within the offshore wind business matches perfectly with the excellent track record of the new owner A1 Offshore Solutions and their existing fleet of PSVs trading currently mainly on German Wind Farm projects.

OWS Off-Shore Wind Solutions has been very happy with the proceedings of the sale and with the performance of Global Renewables Shipbrokers as well as with the buyers. “We are happy that the GRS driven Tender Sale Process could obtain this high interest in the market for our divestment of the Ocean Zephyr”, said Sellers Management. “This purchase is part of our response to our customer’s demands for more high quality Walk-to-Work vessels”, says A1 Offshore Solutions MD Tom Nielsen.

Even though that GRS have already booked in a long term charter for A1 and the OCEAN ZEPHYR during the next five years (Summer Season) the vessel and its permanently installed Ampelmann A Type will also be made available to other interested charterers. During Winter, Spring and Autumn she will be based in Emden, fully mobilized and promptly available for any short or long term Offshore Walk-to-Work enquiries.
