Tokyo Kisen purchases crew transfer vessel

Mission

Helping Tokyo Kisen Co. purchase a crew transfer vessel for the Japanese offshore wind market.

Background

Tokyo Kisen is a towage operator from Japan. The company is publicly traded and looking to diversify its services. The company has become interested in the offshore wind sector through JBR.

Problem statement

An offshore wind farm is planned off the coast of Fukushima, Japan. Initially, a demo turbine will be built. After that more turbines will follow. In order to operate these turbines in the best possible way, a crew transfer vessel is required. Tokyo Kisen has asked JBR to assist in the purchase of a crew transfer vessel.

Our contribution

JBR mapped the supply of crew transfer vessels. Based on the criteria applicable in Japan, a shortlist of suitable crew transfer vessels was made. The parties on this shortlist were approached to sound out their interest in the sale of a crew transfer vessel. Eventually JBR guided the successful negotiations with Veka.

The result

Tokyo Kisen has purchased a suitable crew transfer vessel. The boat meets the requirements and has now been deployed on contract.
