Acta Marine Launches Acta Marine France
Acta Marine, a leading owner and operator of offshore service operating vessels that provides accommodation and walk to work services to the offshore wind industry, has announced the establishment of its French subsidiary and the opening of its new office in Montoir de Bretagne, France.
The new office will be shared with its long-term partner Alka Marine and is part of Acta Marine's efforts to increase its local presence and position itself for the local market.
The new subsidiary, Acta Marine France, will enable Acta Marine to better serve its clients in France, one of the largest and most promising markets for offshore wind in Europe. The new office in Montoir de Bretagne will also facilitate the deployment of Acta Marine's fleet in the region and provide easy access to nearby offshore wind farms such as Parc du Banc de Guérande project on which Acta Marine was chartered by GE Renewable Energy in 2022 for the commissioning of its turbines, and Fécamp and Courseulles wind farms on which Acta Marine will assist Siemens Gamesa with turbine commissioning scopes in 2024 and 2025.
Acta Marine France’s President, Nicolas De Boer, commented on the company's move into France, saying, "We are excited to establish the French subsidiary and expand Acta Marine’s presence in the country. By opening this new office in Montoir de Bretagne, we are strengthening our commitment to the region and increasing our ability to provide our clients with the highest quality of service."
The new office will allow Acta Marine France to build up a strong local team. As Audrie Jordan, manager commercial affairs and corporate services confirms “spending time with the Acta team, learning from their experience in offshore wind, and assisting them in getting familiar with the local constraints has already been an exciting experience. I’m thrilled to start in this new position and building up an Acta Marine France team. I’m grateful for their trust and look forward to managing the Acta Marine France business”.
Acta Marine has a long history of providing innovative solutions to the offshore industry, and its increasing fleet of CSOVs and SOVs is specially designed to provide safe, efficient and comfortable accommodation and walk-to-work services to offshore wind developers. With the establishment of its new subsidiary and office in Montoir de Bretagne, Acta Marine will be able to provide these services to its clients in France more efficiently and effectively.
