PES was delighted to speak with Valentin Hartmann, a partner in Waterworks Offshore CONCEPTS. He was enthusiastic about their new venture, as they branch out into the ship finance market. A bold new chapter is beginning in this young dynamic company, encompassed in a slight change of name. They have already established links with investors, which are proving to be mutually beneficial and will continue to do so in the future.
PES: Hi Valentin, welcome to PES Wind, it’s great to have this opportunity to talk with you. It would be good to start with an overview of the company.
Valentin Hartmann: Hi, yes thanks for giving us the opportunity to introduce our company and its services to the PES readers and the offshore industry.
Waterworks Offshore was founded in 2014 by Sven Boedewig and since then has been active in the offshore oil & gas sector, as well as the renewables market. Chartering and S&P to the industry have been key activities since then.
Lately we have been very busy with recycling offshore assets as well. I joined the company in 2018 and have been actively supporting our clients in the renewables market, especially in chartering for wind park O&M campaigns in the North Sea.
