expanding horizons.

Waterworks Offshore Concepts is the first and only ship finance provider purely to the offshore renewable energy industry with state-of-the-art and flexible ship finance solutions, match-making M&A concepts, strengthened by exclusive brokerage services.

We provide private equity and bank financing whether for existing fleets, fleet expansion and renewal or newbuilding projects. Renewable energy will be the primary source of power in the future and offshore renewables play a huge part in the ongoing transition. With almost limitless potential this green industry is waiting for innovation from the inside. Wind turbines are becoming bigger, offshore wind parks larger and authorities as well as energy companies are raising safety standards continuously. These ongoing developments call for special and sustainable ships, which are ready to work in this market or even show a glimpse into the future of offshore shipping themselves.

Waterworks Offshore Concepts is acting in its own innovative way to shape the future of the renewable energy industry. Modern ship finance meets high-quality brokerage and M&A advisory from a young and skilled team who pride themselves on hanseatic reliability.

OUR SERVICES

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

Within the Offshore Renewable Markets, companies are increasingly looking to either buy or sell stakes. Finding strategic investors to accelerate growth or to tap into new market areas are common reasons for companies to seek advice when it comes to Mergers and Acquisitions.

On the buy-side, investors are attracted by specialist companies that are leading service providers or technology enablers for Offshore Wind.

Large M&A advisory firms are often asking for retainers and heavy fees while the full process might be an overkill. Waterworks takes a lean match-making approach to M&A by utilizing it’s network of professional investors who are well established in the M&A space and hence have the ability to do their own due diligence processes and have legal support.

SHIP FINANCE

Traditional ship finance is mostly known with stiff structures and little to no flexibility to cover unforeseen events or strong market fluctuations. That often causes problems and leads to re-negotiations of existing finance deals which are cost and time consuming for all parties involved.

Waterworks Offshore Concepts allows offshore shipowners a financial flexibility shipping never had before. We look at ship finance from a new perspective, bringing back the advantages of ship finance.

Shipowners need to have more flexibility by default to slightly change payment structures for a limited time by either postponing payment or pay off asset debt in times of higher revenue.

Finance houses on the other side benefit from the pre-agreed structures with less to worry about in volatile markets.

With more than 80,000 ships worth more than USD 1 trillion operating 24/7, the shipping industry’s appetite for capital is insatiable.

SHIPBROKING

Shipbrokerage is the root of our business. Since 2014, Waterworks Offshore Concepts has built a well-known reputation in the offshore shipping market for Sale and Purchase as well as Chartering vessels on behalf of our clients.

Assets we work with in the Offshore Wind Market range from Crew Transfer Vessels and Tugboats to Subsea Construction and Windfarm Installation Vessels. Owners and Charterers can rely on our experience and knowledge surrounding all brokerage services and have done so in the past.

We always go into the discussion with our clients before a new project starts to fully understand all aspects of it and to protect the interest of our clients. For us, a controled flow of information is one of the most important factors so every project can be handled with care.

Beside our finance and investment opportunities we support our clients through sourcing suitable assets and the whole purchase negotiation progress.
