We recently took a stand as part of the IMCA pavillion at the European Wind Energy Association exhibition in Copenhagen last month. This gave us the opportunity to gauge levels of interest in the NWA, particularly from European workboat operators. There was considerable interest from several European operators as well as visits from numerous UK operators, many of whom were members surprised to see us there, but also several new faces, one of whom has since joined the association.
On June 15th, the NWA will be hosting a forum entitled “Towage: Reducing the Risks – Raising the Standards” in the Upper Deck Conference Room, from 10:30 – 13:30. Members are strongly encouraged to join – but all are welcome.
Following public consultation, the MCA has now published an updated version of the High Speed – Offshore Service Craft Code for vessels under 500 tonnes.
