Welcome to Windcat

At Windcat, we have been at the forefront of providing specialist crew transfer vessels to the offshore industry for over two decades. We offer a global reach with a local focus from our offices all over Europe. We work with our joint venture partners; FRS Windcat Germany & Poland and TSM Windcat France.

Our vessel design is a key factor in our success. We build efficient and tailor-made vessels to answer clients’ needs. Our teams of dedicated professionals operate and support these vessels. We maintain top-level standards, offering additional in-house training for our crew to ensure secure client transfers. Our onshore personnel and engineering teams provide exceptional service, supported by strategically located warehouses for uninterrupted vessel operations.

Windcat is a family that stands for pioneering experience, efficiency, trust and service, for a sustainable future. Ultimately, the way of working and the people at Windcat is what makes us stand out!

Our fleet

We own and operate a growing fleet of over 55 offshore CTV’s. The vessel’s layout and propulsion are optimised to transfer personnel offshore in a safe and comfortable environment. 
As windfarms go further offshore, crews need a home away from home. Therefore we are adding a new vessel type to our fleet to offer safety and comfort for up to 120 people. We will deliver the first CSOV into operations in 2025.

Powered by hydrogen

We choose to integrate hydrogen into all our new vessels to reduce our clients’ CO₂ emissions.

Along with CMB.TECH we have been developing hydrogen solutions and have elected to include Hydrogen into all our new build vessels to reduce our and intern our clients’ CO₂ emissions.
