DISA INTERNATIONAL HOLDING BVBA, the innovative underwater solutions provider, announces that it has acquired the 50% stake of Wals Diving & Marine Services in C‐Ventus Offshore Windfarm Services BV, thereby obtaining a 100% interest in C‐Ventus through its wholly owned subsidiary DISA Nederland BV.
With an excellent safety record, C‐Ventus is known as a leading service provider in the offshore wind segment. On basis of its rope‐access, survey, diving and ROV capability, C‐Ventus renders a wide array of services from the seabed up, in the installation and O&M phases of offshore windfarms. The company is thereby the one‐stop shop supplier of choice to a client‐base which consists of both installation contractors and energy companies.
Hans Reinigert, Managing Director of DISA INTERNATIONAL, said: “We are pleased to announce this step forward for DISA, which is in line withour strategic plans and reflects our focus on the offshore sector in general and offshore wind in particular. We are proud of and thankful for what we have achieved thus far together with our former partners Wals Diving and value the relationship with them. That relationship will be the basis for close and exclusive cooperation in years a head. The C‐Ventus culture as well as the name, which has become a recognized brand name in a relatively short period of time, will obviously remain and we very much look forward to expand the company further, be it organically or by other acquisitions.”
Cor Wals, Managing Director of Wals Diving, mentioned: “"The sale of our stake in C‐Ventus is part of our drive to strengthen our core business. In a constantly solid partnership over the last few years, we have been able to make C‐Ventus a successful leader in the offshore wind segment. By uniting continuity with new perspectives, I'm convinced that DISA's complete acquisition of C‐Ventus will offer the customers, partners, employees and other stakeholders of C‐Ventus a beneficial and sustainable structure. Our dealings and recent negotiations with DISA were always constructive and based on a spirit of mutual understanding and trust. In a new setting, we will continue to cooperate with DISA and contribute to the success of C‐Ventus.”
C‐Ventus Offshore Windfarm Services BV has been established in 2011. Over the years the company has enhanced its service package as well as operational working area, which now includes the Dutch, Belgian, French, German and UK sectors. In these areas C‐Ventus offers installation, service and repair works from the seabed up, whereby it is committed to the highest quality and safety standards. Assignments already completed comprise diving and ROV operations, scour mitigation, survey and positioning, cable inspections and repairs, cleaning and coating and cable pull‐ins, as well as the marine operations associated with these works. Be it overall project management of annual inspection programs and follow‐up remedial action or ad‐hoc consultancy and specific project support, C‐Ventus is able to deliver based on knowhow and experience. Safe, reliable and always with the Client’s best interest at hart, C-Ventus truly appreciates the challenges posed by an offshore environment.
