Clarksons Platou is aiming to capitalise on the growth in offshore wind shipping with a new advisory service.

The company launched the operation called AIR on Wednesday.

Overseen by Clarksons Renewables, it is targeted at clients already working in the sector, or looking to break into it.

The new service will be led by three former European offshore wind company executives: David Matthews from GE Renewables, Mikkel Nielsen from Iberdrola and Gabriel Andersen from Orsted.

AIR will offer development of engineering, procurement, construction and installation strategies, as well as operation and maintenance guidance, for both fixed and floating wind plants.
