International PR for world-first project led by Morek Engineering

 The UK Government has awarded funding to a consortium led by Morek Engineering to design a new class of low-carbon installation vessel for the floating offshore wind market.

The consortium has won the funding through the UK Government’s Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition based on their proven track record in innovative vessel design and delivery of complex offshore operations. The consortium includes Morek Engineering, Solis Marine Engineering, Tope Ocean, First Marine Solutions and Celtic Sea Power.

Bob Colclough, MD of Morek Engineering, said: “This will be a first-in-class low-carbon vessel designed specifically to meet the complex installation requirements of floating offshore wind farm moorings and foundations. The project aims to align the detailed requirements of the emerging Floating Wind sector with the objectives of the UK maritime decarbonisation agenda.”

The consortium commissioned Brand Innovation to devise an international PR campaign to publicise the project among opinion leaders in the marine renewables industry. The project created a great deal of interest and was reported by more than 40 news outlets around the world. These included Clean Shipping International (France), Maritime Economy (India), Ocean News & Technology (Florida), Global Renewable News (Canada), and World Ports (Singapore).

Commenting on the success of Brand Innovation’s campaign, Bob Colclough said: “Terrific work. On behalf of all of the consortium, I thank you for pushing this far and wide. Some very good coverage and interesting, very supportive feedback.”
