N-O-S and SEA O.G form U.S. company

Northern Offshore Services (N-O-S) and SEA O.G Offshore have formed a new company, American Offshore Services (A-O-S). With its own fleet, A-O-S will serve the American offshore wind industry with Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) and additional services.

A-O-S has placed an order at Blount Boats in Rhode Island for four Jones Act compliant Hybrid Ready CTVs. The vessels are part of N-O-S's new “G-Class” series, which is a new generation of N-O-S CTVs. The design aims to provide the first hybrid ready CTVs in the U.S. market, with vessels being delivered throughout 2023/2024. All four vessels will immediately go to work servicing the Nations upcoming utility scale offshore wind projects.

A-O-S has also signed the first contracts with clients in the U.S. Starting in Q2 2023, A-O-S will provide CTVs to transfer personnel and equipment for four different wind farms on the U.S. East Coast during the construction phase.

“We believe in globalization and we are happy to have found a partner in Sea O.G. in the United States that shares our vision and values. American Offshore Services is the next step in our company’s journey”,
said David Kristensson, owner of Northern Offshore Services.

"A-O-S is a shining example of how US Contractors can work in partnership to rapidly advance our local industry"
said James Clouse, Managing Director and co-founder of A-O-S. "We are realizing our dream of moving America's offshore wind industry forward and doing it with partnerships built on shared vision and values."
