Energy Watch has supported Umoe Mandal by providing market research for the offshore wind energy market. Next to performing general market analysis, competition analysis and customer analysis, Energy Watch created a detailed value analysis, quantifying the value of the unique properties of the UM Wave Craft.
Umoe Mandal is a Norwegian ship-building company, part of the Ulltveit-Moe Group, and is very active in the naval market. Umoe Mandal is known for its expertise in Fibre Reinforced Plastics and high speed “Surface-Effect-Ship” technology.
New offshore wind projects are situated at increasing distances from shore and in increasingly rough seas. At these sites, today's service vessels would only allow transfers for a limited number of days per year. The UM Wave Craft is a “Surface-Effect-Ship” (SES) which solves the problem of transferring engineers and equipment safely to wind turbines as far as 300km offshore in wave heights up to around three metres.
