Offshore logistics

Drawing on our marine heritage

For 25 years, we’ve been expanding our versatile fleet of flat-top barges, along with a wide inventory of equipment for complex offshore logistics. Our marine heritage provides an advantage for blue energy – we can use our cross-sector, on and off-shore experience to find unexpected value for you in every part of the project. We’ll deliver your assets safely, smoothly, on time and on budget.

Cable logistics, cable storage. Near-shore supply projects. Support for subsea construction of all kinds, load outs and decommissioning at scale – we have a fleet of barges, carousels, heavy-lift cranes and SPMTs that enable us to find the very best way of transporting and installing heavy assets both on and offshore. When you choose Osprey as your logistics partner, you get access to multi-disciplined specialists. You can meet some of the Offshore Logistics team here.

Marine engineers, naval architects, ex-deck officers, pilots, operators, planners, sector specialists … this combination of insights and experience is the reason why many of our clients have been with us for a quarter of a century. We have the equipment and the expertise.

Specialist Cargo 

Whatever you’re moving, wherever it needs to go in the world, we can engineer the whole project from factory to foundation. Osprey provides specialist logistics solutions for all types of cargos with transport on the widest range of vessels. Everything from HLVs to coasters, or with own barge fleet of course.

Load outs / Load ins 

When it comes to the world’s most challenging cargos, we’ve proven our capabilities many times over. Osprey can engineer and design the transport needed for the cargo, to the vessel itself, and then our teams can carry out the loading and securing for the sea transit – it’s an end-to-end programme of specialist logistics that gives you increased confidence (and reduces risks and costs). We can also provide guidance and oversight for any projects you’re handling – any kind of specialist cargo moving offshore, or on.

Our work provides for engineering, design and calculations, including FEA, Autocad 2D and 3D modelling of the sea fastenings we recommend for each project. We then manage the fabrication and installation process, as necessary, and our in-house Heavy Lift team will deliver the project using our own SPMTs and cranes.

Cable Logistics / Cable Storage

Osprey has several years’ cable storage and cable logistics experience. We can design and manage every aspect of your cable movements’ project; everything from building bespoke cable baskets and shipping to ensuring your cable is stored securely and providing cable testing services. 

Chartering 

Osprey can also offer vessels and barges on a straight supply basis, supported by a world-class Customs and Port Agency service for any kind of cargo.

UK Port Services 

We provide all agencies services for vessels calling at northern ports in the UK, and our Port Services team can assist with all aspects of HMRC Customs clearance including VAT.

Better, together

Working in partnership with our clients, we’ve been successfully transporting critical cargoes for the renewable energy, oil and gas, and power industries for years. Port-to-port, port-to-offshore, and offshore-to-onshore – every project benefits from the Osprey Way of Working.

Through Osprey, you have global reach. Our port services team is super-connected and well-respected – we have long-standing relationships locally, working to your advantage. We also have great onshore capability through our specialist heavy haulage partners, Allelys Heavy Haulage Ltd. We offer everything from cable storage to complex offshore scheduling and seabed installations. And if we don’t have a solution today, we will create one tomorrow.
