Sarens PSG and Aventus Energy have entered into a joint venture agreement to offer an integrated port marshalling service to the offshore wind sector.

Sarens PSG – a joint venture between Sarens and PSG Marine & Logistics to serve the offshore wind and renewables sector across Scotland – provides turnkey heavy lifting and transport solutions to the offshore wind sector including port marshalling, floating wind deployment and wind turbine generator integration services. Aventus Energy, meanwhile, specialises in inspection, repair, and maintenance solutions.

The decision to form the joint venture between Sarens PSG and Aventus Energy came as the companies recognised market demand for a single integrated contract model capable of delivering a wide range of services that align with the combined scope of both entities.

It will be called Aventus SPG and will be led by Ross Thomson, managing director of Aventus Energy. He said: “We look forward to combining both companies’ expertise and capabilities to introduce an unparalleled service offering for port marshalling and OEM integration projects. We believe this turnkey approach will be viewed favourably by our existing and future clients.”

Steve Clark, managing director of Sarens PSG, added: “This is a significant development for Sarens PSG and Aventus Energy. Bringing the expertise and capabilities of both companies together to provide a single integrated contract model is unique in the wind energy sector and we hope the move is well received by the market. It will also create huge potential for the local workforce to be involved in the delivery of some of the largest capex projects in Scotland’s history.”

Aventus SPG plans to commence a recruitment drive immediately, which will include offshore wind specific training and an apprentice scheme, providing multiple decades of prospects for those interested in environmentally focussed careers.
