The acquisition will accelerate the positive development of the Wind Multiplikator Group, significantly strengthen Semco Maritime’s position in the offshore wind service market and contribute to the realisation of Semco Maritime’s strategic aim of becoming the global leader for large renewable infrastructure projects and within operations and maintenance (O&M) to offshore wind farms in particular. The acquisition will aim to drive accelerated growth through wider market access, sales synergies and stronger competencies enabling greater value creation for existing and new customers.

Semco Maritime is aiming to create the best framework for leveraging the growth opportunities in the offshore wind market, which is expected to quadruple by 2030, and the acquisition will contribute to this.
