Charles Taylor, Survey Association partner to serve offshore wind market

Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services and Survey Association have announced a strategic alliance to provide marine warranty services in the North American offshore wind market.

Survey Association has been involved in offshore wind energy since the 1990s, and has acted as MWS on various wind farm projects.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the knowledge we have built over decades working in the European and Japanese offshore wind energy sectors to benefit the developing US market,” said Survey Association CEO Henrik Uth.

The companies said that the alliance will act as insurance underwriters’ representatives, ensuring that offshore wind projects follow industry best practices and safeguard against potential risks.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Survey Association on marine warranty services to enhance our clients’ risk management practices and mitigate risks for their industry-leading construction projects,” said Kuhrt Wieneke, president of Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services. “Leveraging the experience of the Survey Association with our highly technical staff of master mariners, chief engineers, and naval architects will provide clear synergies to our clients.”

Marine warranty services are available to clients across North America, the companies said.
