This is in addition to the growing demands of wind farm support vessels. “We are now in a position to deliver everything from winches and remote controlled gantry cranes (Multi Deck Handler – MDH) with manipulator, to stern rollers – basically all the deck machinery you need”, comments HATLAPA´s Managing Director Alexander Nürnberg. The Norwegian company is the global market leader for anchor handling systems, buoys and ropes on board ships. “Our companies complement each other totally – it’s a perfect fit!”, says Alexander Nürnberg who will be Chairman of the new subsidiary. Triplex AS has 70 employees, based in the small North Atlantic town of Averøy near Kristiansund and has an annual turnover of 30 million Euro. In addition Triplex AS has a site in Chile, with 17 employees.
