General – Partnership
The Dutch-based companies Marine Coordination Services (MCS) and DHSS are teaming up in order to strengthen their forces to unburden operators working in the offshore wind industry.
Both companies have years of experience, being the interface between a wide variety of stakeholders working in the offshore wind industry.
Marine Coordination is the crucial link between the planning and the offshore execution of activities. The maritime control centre is the central planning and coordination room for the offshore execution of activities such as the construction of a wind farm or cable laying in the seabed. It manages all operational activities in a safe and efficient way.
“Adding marine coordination to our current helicopter coordination services completes the full scope of work we aim to deliver to our clients to unburden them. This activity is the added value to our current operations as vessel agency, port logistics and helicopter operations which DHSS is providing. With MCS on board, we have found a well-established collaborating partner, ensuring that the onsite marine operations of our clients are performed safely and efficiently, 24/7 – by air and vessel,” says DHSS’s CEO Wim Schouwenaar.
MCS’s director Jens Doeksen: “We are very pleased to have found a strategic partner in DHSS, which is highly involved in the offshore wind development on a wide scale, serving all majors in various phases. Sharing experience, network and knowledge will create a further basis of trust where our mutual clients will benefit from. Beside our brand new main control room at Terschelling with our latest IT solutions, MCS has now presence at A1 locations in Eemshaven, IJmuiden and Den Helder. We also team up with the helicopter coordination team of DHSS, which is developing on a global scale rapidly, so we have full coverage. We are now able to execute helicopter & marine coordination services worldwide for our offshore wind clients, with first opportunities in Europe and US.”
