Our team’s past projects
Thanks from our November 2017 – August 2018 charter clients:
“On behalf of DEME Group, I would thank the team for the work done with the vessel “Atlantic Explorer” and with the associated ROGE WROV system, which has been awarded a contract for the boulders’ removal works on the Hornsea 01 Offshore Windfarm in the North Sea.
In almost nine months, the Atlantic Explore has successfully relocated over 4,600 boulders, meeting the all the given targets. During this period Atlantic Marine’s crew and onshore personnel have showed a perfect professional approach, performing the work always at the top of their capabilities.
In conclusion this supplier has demonstrated to be a solid and reliable partner and set the foundation for a cooperation with DEME Group which is likely to continue in the future.”
ir. Paolo Modesto Pace | Project Engineer | Hornsea 1 Project
Thanks from our May 2017 charter clients: On a personal title and on behalf of Belfor Logistics I want to thank you and the entire crew for the very good performance during the project week in Brest. It was a pleasure working together. You have all contributed together to the success of this operation.
The project team was happy and asked me to also thank you (the Captain) on their behalf.
They asked me to mention especially yourself for being such a good host on board and the excellent cooperation during the operations, for the multiple crane operations – and the cook for very good food on board.

BOULDER REMOVAL OPERATIONS – WEST ADLERGRUND CLUSTER
Ref: Atlantic Carrier & Atlantic Tonjer Testimonial
Offshore Marine Management (OMM) are pleased to acknowledge that the boulder clearance vessel “Atlantic Carrier” and “Atlantic Tonjer” associated ROGE WROV system, which was contracted by OMM to perform boulder clearance works on the West Adlergrund Windfarm Cluster in the German Baltic Sea, has successfully completed operations. The overall project ran between November 2015 and June 2016 and the Atlantic Tonjer and Atlantic
Carrier performed all associated task in the removal of boulders to the complete satisfaction of OMM.
The Atlantic Tonjer and Atlantic Carrier and the crew performed all tasks with excellent leadership from the on-board master and the management team based onshore, with excellent communications between all parties ensuring that the project was a success. Throughout the project the vessel utilisation was around the 90% mark (inclusive of weather downtime) and the boulder removal rate averaged in excess of 55 boulders per day for the project, frequently operating as high as 85 boulders depending upon boulder concentration.
The vessels station keeping was demonstrated with excellent control within tight working corridors, allowing the ROGE ROV system with subsea Grab to remove in excess of 6000+ boulders and targets from the cable routes, quickly and efficiently.
OMM are very satisfied with the service provided by Atlantic Marine, and would not hesitate to use the system again for seabed clearance. I would personally like to thank Paul and the team at Atlantic Marine for a job excellently executed with a positive attitude, whilst maintaining a complete professional approach to offshore subsea operations.

HUMBER GATEWAY OFFSHORE WINFARM 2014/15: CABLE LAY OPERATIONS
“In my opinion Atlantic Carrier’s vessel and shore based men have done fine work and can compare themselves favourably to any cable pulling vessel we have had on this site. Taking account of the fact that the competition on this site included well experienced cable contractors SIEM, VSMC and well experienced sub-sea/trenching contractor Fugro, it is an achievement of note.
Starting a cable laying entity from scratch is a tall order, having the forbearance to stick with the trials and tribulations as it develops from nothing to a cable laying machine requires quality men and machines and the Atlantic Carrier team has delivered”.

ICS INSTALLATION – ATLANTIC CARRIER VESSEL CONVERSION AND CABLE LAY OPERATIONS 2013/14
The culmination of this journey was the successful installation of 42% (32) of the cables on a windfarm project, with a vessel that was designed specifically for the task and the environment it was to work in. The environment was harsh, North Sea, in excess of 3.6 knots of current on springs and 2 knots on neaps and often with wave heights 1.5hs to 2.6 max. All vessels either have to be powerful enough to hold against the elements so as to hold station for the second end deployment without rotation for current. This was overcome by building a hybrid system, a combination of DP and mooring, first end and lay on DP second end on anchors.
In head to head operations the vessel performed equally to established installers at a reduced day rate cost. Overall the vessel achieved many new innovations and firsts in the industry
LONDON ARRAY – DIVING AND TRENCHING OPERATIONS SUPPORT: ATLANTIC GUARDIAN – SEPTEMBER 2013
“Herewith I like to thank all for a job well done on a very challenging work site with strong currents and areas that fall dry.
The key to the success of this project has been the dedication and commitment of all whom have worked hard in ensuring that the project has been completed safely and to a very high standard.”
OFFSHORE ACCOMMODATION – FLOATEL OSV SERVICES: LONDON ARRAY / SHERIGHAM SHOAL WINDFARMS – MAY 2013
“I confirm that I have dealt with Atlantic Marine since 2013, when they have provided both vessels and maritime management services to VSH at the London Array Wind Farm project. Atlantic Marine’s services have always been to the highest possible standard and especially their rapid reaction in case of possible down times and flexibility in planning have been very important for our success in the project.
Paul Crowther provides a level of customer orientated service, which, unfortunately, is not common practice in the marine environment. Furthermore the vessels provided to us (a.o Atlantic Surveyor) had an excellent price quality ratio and any issue was always resolved swiftly.
Last but not least, all financial aspects of our contracts were always dealt with in a very correct manner. I would happily re-employ Atlantic Marine on future VS Hanab projects and can confidently recommend them as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field”.
