EnTrust Global’s maritime holding company, Purus Marine, has revealed a takeover deal in the UK to expand its offshore wind vessel fleet.

The company has acquired Swansea-based HST Marine and its fleet of crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for an undisclosed price.

HST’s modern fleet of seven operational ships and four newbuildings on order includes one of the industry’s first battery hybrid CTVs, the 25-loa Chartwell-designed HST Ella (built 2021).
