Seacat Services own and operate a fleet of DNV-GL classified multi-purpose offshore energy support vessels.
Our head office is situated in Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK, and a short walk from our chosen vessel builder, South Boats Isle of Wight.
All our vessels are designed and constructed to conduct fast, smooth and comfortable transport of persons and goods from the shore to the wind farm and vice versa in the toughest of Northern Europe’s marine environments. Every vessel in the fleet fully complies with DNV-GL ✠1A1 HSLC Wind farm Service 1 and Category 1 enabling them to operate up to 150Nm offshore.
The management team at Seacat all have proven track records in their particular field, from QHSE and technical through to operations and crew management. Each of them has spent many years at sea and the key operational roles are occupied by individuals with Masters and engineering qualifications. This enables the team not only to have empathy with the crew in the field, but also to be able to spend time onboard the vessels keeping skills current and supporting crewmembers when required.
The company has so far successfully completed contracts in UK, German and Danish waters for clients that include Centrica, DONG Energy, Nexans Deutschland, Siemens, SSE, Vattenfall, VBMS and Wind MW. Operations are on going throughout the North Sea.
As an expanding company we look forward to broadening our client base and welcome the opportunity to utilise the good practice we have learned to date.
Seacat Services wish to be a respected vessel operator and to achieve this we pledge to listen to our clients, co-operate with our competitors, keep in front of developments and incentivise our employees.
Every vessel in the Seacat fleet fully complies with DNV-GL ✠1A1 HSLC Wind farm Service 1 and Category 1 enabling them to operate up to 150Nm offshore.
The organization and each individual vessel operates within an Integrated Management System (IMS), designed and written in-house specifically for the wind farm support vessel application. This conforms to the requirements as laid out by the ‘International Safety Management’ (ISM) code, voluntary for vessels under 500GRT and also with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. This system is audited and certified to these four standards by DNV-GL.
The vessel GRT means that they are below the minimum size for mandatory compliance with much of the IMO driven legislation. We do however believe that where practical for our size of vessel and the capabilities of the crew, implementation of maritime industry best practice is of significant value, therefore many of the requirements of these codes are covered by our IMS including the ISM Code, STCW, CoSWP, SOLAS, MLC, IMDG and MARPOL.
