Christmas may be just around the corner but the Rix Sea Shuttle fleet workload is showing no signs of slowing down for the festive period.
80 per cent of our fleet is contracted to major wind farm developments throughout December, despite this period traditionally being the quietest month of the year.
The Rix Leopard and the Rix Lion are both contracted to the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm which lies around 32km off the Cromer coast.
The Panther is working off the Sussex coast at the Rampion Wind Farm, and the Cheetah is working out of the port of Grimsby throughout December.
Only the Rix Tiger is not working this month, while it undergoes routine maintenance over the winter period.
James Doyle, managing director of Rix Sea Shuttle, said “Normally December is the quietest month by far with most of the crew transfer vessels laid up until the new year. For many operators this is still the case, but we have secured some fantastic contracts with some great companies so we are still working at near capacity.
“Looking ahead, 2017 will hopefully bring new opportunities and growth at Rix Sea Shuttle. There is a lot of unrest in the offshore support vessel market at the moment, but the Rix Group has 140 years of experience in operating ships which is vital in navigating the industry. That knowledge and experience is at the heart of everything we do.”
