The current situation in the offshore markets is demanding. While the low oil price is pushing charter rates down and projects are postponed, the wind industry has to get the vessel costs down to meet the cost targets which were set by the new feed-in tariffs.
This is a market situation which is well known to Bernhard Schulte from the commoditized merchant shipping sector it operates in. Especially, during the last years of crisis, the group’s operations were adjusted to providing high quality services at competitive prices. These services are available to the offshore industry through BS Offshore, the offshore unit of Bernhard Schulte.
BS Offshore enters the offshore markets (wind as well as oil & gas) with innovative ideas and a different approach compared to the usual offshore shipping companies. BS Offshore is an asset provider for the industry, meaning it delivers tools for industry clients to fulfill the needs of their customers. Vessels are not built on speculation, but tailor made to meet the actual requirements of the customers, based on a long-term charter agreement.
