About us

North Sea Logistics is one of the UK's biggest and most experienced logistics companies, specialising in the transportation of people and equipment for the UK wind power industry.

With a large fleet of purpose-built vessels, we are able to meet the rigorous demands and challenges of this unique environment. What’s more, we’re proud of our hands-on approach from top to bottom of the company, always willing to go the extra mile.

When it comes to offshore logistics, we have unrivalled experience and a safety record that is second to none. And, of course, we have a vast fund of accumulated know-how in the efficient transfer of personnel and equipment.

We were involved in the industry from the very beginning, with the construction of the Blyth Wind Farm in 2000 - at the time, the biggest offshore installation anywhere in the world - and our growth has paralleled that of the industry itself.

From ‘can you just’ to mission critical, if we say we’ll do it, consider it done. That’s why we’re a trusted supplier to the major names in the UK wind power industry.

BARROW OFFSHORE WIND FARM

One of the largest offshore wind farms in the UK, Barrow is capable of powering some 75,000 homes, and saving around 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, compared with fossil fuels.

Construction began in 2005, and by mid-2006, the 30 Vestas V90 turbines were operating at full capacity. To support the construction phase, we supplied a purpose-built catamaran, "XPLORER", together with an 8m Delta water-jet RIB, and both vessels continue to provide logistical support

BLYTH OFFSHORE WIND FARM

Located just off the coast of Northumberland, Blyth Wind Farm was the UK's first offshore installation, featuring what were, back in 2000, two of the world's biggest turbines. North Sea Logistics provided support right from the start, and has done so throughout the continuing O&M phase.

Now back in full production after lengthy repairs to the undersea transmission cable, the Blyth Wind Farm has provided us with invaluable experience of working in one of the UK's most challenging offshore locations. North Sea Logistics has signed recently a new contract to supply vessels to EON.

KENTISH FLATS OFFSHORE WIND FARM

At the time of its construction in 2005, Kentish Flats, some 10km off Whitstable, was the largest such project in the UK, with thirty 3MW turbines. Over its design lifetime of 20 years, the installation will save an estimated 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 compared with fossil fuels

Working from an operation and maintenance facility in Whitstable Harbour, North Sea Logistics' purpose-built catamaran, "Celtic Storm", and 8m RIB, "Kentish Flyer", provide a full range of personnel and equipment transfer services in connection with ongoing inspection and maintenance schedules.

NORTH HOYLE OFFSHORE WIND FARM

Situated about 7km off the coast of North Wales, between Rhyl and Prestatyn, North Hoyle's 60MW capacity provides enough clean electricity to power some 40,000 homes.

North Sea Logistics provided three transfer vessels during the construction of what was, at the time, the UK's biggest offshore wind farm, and still operates "Celtic Wind", a purpose-built shallow-draft service vessel, and "Little Mike", an 8m water-jet RIB. To date, "Celtic CHALLENGER" has safely carried out well over 250,000 personnel transfers to the 30 turbines at North Hoyle.

SCROBY SANDS OFFSHORE WIND FARM

With thirty Vestas 2MW turbines, each standing over 220ft high to the rotor hub, Scroby Sands was commissioned in 2004, and now provides enough clean power for some 30,000 homes.

The main service vessel is the "Celtic Warrior", operated by North Sea Logistics. Specially designed for service and maintenance operations in the shallow waters that cover Scroby Sands, she draws only 0.80m, and her twin diesels power a water-jet propulsion system rather than conventional screws. She is supported by a second NSL vessel, the 8m Delta RIB, whimsically known as "Scroby Doo".
