ANTS Offshore has launched a new service to supply North Sea wind farms. The DP2 vessel Abis Dundee will gather cargo from as many clients as possible to increase the transport volume and reduce prices.

The new offshore service provided by ANTS Offshore will cover the supply of offshore stations, wind farms in various North Sea wind clusters as well as offshore construction sites. Departures are planned to take place on a regular basis every week. ANTS will keep the DP2 vessel Abis Dundee ready for this purpose 365 days a year. According to ANTS, any North Sea wind farm can be reached within 12 hours. Depending on customer requirements, departures can take place from any North Sea port, and ANTS assumes all risks in connection with the weather.

ANTS uses a colony concept to reduce costs. The company collects cargo from as many customers as possible to increase the resulting transport volume. Billing is based on 'price per unit', which gives the client a simple calculation method: the larger the amount of cargo on board, the cheaper it is for all clients of the corresponding cargo run.

The DP2 vessel Abis Dundee chartered from Amasus, which is only two years old, has a cargo area of approximately 3,000 m², 570 cubic metres of fuel and 400 cubic metres of fresh water with corresponding transfer pumps. A waste water tank is available on board. The large cargo areas above and below deck also allow the ship to be used as a floating spare parts warehouse or workshop warehouse.

ANTS Offshore is the new brand of the German Schramm group, a specialist company for port services, transport and logistics in the offshore sector. The offshore broker office F3O GmbH in Hamburg was nominated exclusively to handle future reservations.
