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.
