A2SEA sells wind turbine installation vessel to Karpowership

Danish offshore wind installation service provider A2SEA has sold its semi-submersible wind turbine installation vessel Sea Power to Karpowership Americas Company.

The vessel has been a part of the A2SEA fleet since 2002. A price for the deal was not disclosed.

The parents of A2SEA, DONG Energy and Siemen Wind Power, have been looking to sell A2SEA. In March, A2SEA announced plans to lay up and sell Sea Power and Sea Jack, as well as remove all of the crew transfer vessels from its portfolio.

“Sea Power pioneered the offshore wind installation business in the early 2000s. She has done great things within offshore wind and we are proud of her and her crew’s achievements. Having served A2SEA since the beginning in 2002 is quite an achievement also considering the increasing demands for equipment in the market. We are happy that the vessel can now continue the career outside A2SEA ,” said Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA.
