There was cause for celebration last week as Green Marine picked up the award for “Best Marine Operator Supporting or Supplying Offshore Renewables” at the Highlands and Islands Renewable Energy Awards.
Jason Schofield, Managing Director of Green Marine said:
“For Green Marine to have won the prestigious award for Best Marine Operator is testament to the dedication and hard work of the onshore and offshore team who provide a world class service to all of our clients. We are forward thinking, innovative and ambitious, with a long-term strategy of growth in the renewable energy sector.”
This was the first year of the awards set up to recognise the best companies in the renewable industry. The aim is to showcase their achievements, reward their contributions to the sector and to the Highlands and Islands economy.

2 Hours after being contacted on Wednesday evening, Green Marine were departing Stromness to aid the Danish fishing vessel Karbak, a 35m trawler which had lost all means of propulsion.
Green Marine quickly produced procedures, taking consideration of the poor weather conditions (Hs >3.5m) and how best to interface our towing equipment with the vessel.
In approximately 18 hours from the call, the Green Isle (Green Marine’s multicat) had transited 152nm to reach the Karbak 60nm off Shetland and safely connected a towline. In the following 7 hours, the Karbak was safely towed and brought alongside the quay in Lerwick and the Green Isle returned to Orkney.
The master of the vessel was grateful for the rapid response time and had this to say:
“We were impressed with how quickly Green Marine organised a team and vessel to come and assist us in our time of need. They were constantly professional from start to finish and resolved a bad situation.”

Green Marines latest vessel, the Green Storm is on contract with Seaway 7 providing safe crew transfers, to and from Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm (BOWL). To crew the Green Storm, an additional skipper and engineer have been employed who collectively bring over 15 years’ experience working on CTVs.
Seaway 7 and Green Marine have previously worked together when the Green Quest was working at BOWL last year. This repeat work is an example of the positive relationship that Green Marine builds with all its clients.
Vincent van Velzen, Operations Engineer for Seaway 7 had the following to say:
“Seaway Heavy Lifting contracted Green Marine(UK)Ltd to provide crew transfer services during offshore wind construction works in Scotland, we were impressed with the level of vessel services provided and the support and response of the office engineering team was fantastic”
