CTV operator, Windcat Workboats, has announced that Seacor Marine has sold Windcat to Belgian CMB. Windcat is the leading operator of CTVs in the North Sea and has a fleet of 46 vessels operating within the European offshore wind sector. Wi

Windcat is headquartered in Lowestoft and Ijmuiden, and has joint ventures with two local partners, FRS Windcat Offshore Logistics in Germany and TSM Windcat in France. The company employs approximately 180 shore-based and sea-going personnel.

Alexander Saverys, CMB’s CEO, said: “The acquisition of Windcat fits into CMB’s strategy to diversify its business portfolio into the fast-growing offshore wind market and scale up the deployment of hydrogen ships and engines. CMB wants to grow Windcat’s business by building on its strong market-leading European platform whilst expanding into new European and non-European markets…”
