C-Ventus Offshore Windfarm Services BV is pleased to announce the merger with 4SEAS BV, which
was successfully concluded on 3 June 2019. All personnel and activities of 4SEAS, including ongoing
projects and opportunity pipeline, will join, respectively be taken over by the new company, which
will trade under the C-Ventus name.
Hans Reinigert, Managing Director C-Ventus commented: “Since 4SEAS main focus appeared to be
the offshore wind industry and C-Ventus has ambitious plans for the future, we believe that this
merger will benefit both companies as well as our joint client base. It also brings about the return of
people that were very much involved in the start-up of C-Ventus and as such the integration will be
smooth and the merger will immediately enhance our capabilities and capacities. Aside from this
positive development, C-Ventus has had an exceptional start of the year with various contracts won
and extended, which will allow us to capitalize further on the strong market growth observed in the
offshore wind sector”.
Martijn Hoogenstraaten, Director Projects of 4SEAS said: “We are very pleased with this merger,
which provides a major opportunity for both parties to meet the growing requirements of the wind
energy sector. Knowing C-Ventus well, it became clear that combining our competencies would
create a total solution provider that benefits all stakeholders. C-Ventus already has an impressive
track record and we look forward to add many successful projects to the long list of both installation
support, O&M and decommissioning services”.
Paul van Tongeren, Business Development Director of 4SEAS added: “This is a merger of two highly
compatible companies, not only do we hold similar values and philosophies on doing business, with
an emphasis on honesty and integrity, we also share a strong focus on safety and quality as well as
the strategic outlook on the offshore wind industry in Western Europe. This has facilitated and
accelerated the talks and the establishing of a new company with enhanced experience and expertise
and as such, the merger will result in a more comprehensive infrastructure with even faster response
times and improved service-levels”.
