NWA Membership Passes 80

Wednesday 28th March 2018

We are pleased to welcome Commercial Rib Charter and Svensk Sjoentreprenad AB, the NWA’s newest members, on board. Commercial Rib Charter (pictured bottom) became the NWA’s 80th member, marking a doubling in the membership numbers since 2011.

 

Svensk Sjoentreprenad AB (pictured top) mark another milestone as the first Swedish based company operating Red Ensign registered workboats.

 

This steady growth in numbers reflects the growth and success of the workboat sector more widely, over the past few years.

 

The number of workboats within the membership has also more than doubled from 260 in 2011 to over 570 today, with most of that growth at the upper end of the 24m limit. 

 

This leads into the <500GT Code of Practice currently being developed by the MCA which will allow larger workboats to be built and operated to a high standard, still complying with the main international requirements such as SOLAS but, with some relief from less appropriate ‘big ship’ rules. More to follow in the coming months.
