Waterworks Offshore Concepts is the first professional and only expert providing Maritime Investment-, Ship Finance- and M&A Advisory exclusively to the Offshore Wind & Renewable Energy Industry with a strong focus on specialized vessels & assets.

Renewable energy will be the primary source of power in the future and offshore wind plays 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 modern, special and sustainable ships, which are ready to work and integrate in this future market and shipping industry.

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 investment and M&A advisory from a young and skilled team who pride themselves on hanseatic reliability.



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.


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.


Global Shipping portfolios have been stabilized, new ship finance structures developed and new sources of finance have become available to the industry. Our know-how and expertise opens up new maritime investment opportunities to traditional investors, banks, funds and issuing houses in a green, modern ESG environment: Offshore Wind.

We introduce our network of investors to a new market, elaborating insights, first-steps, creating and evaluating potential investment opportunities to become a part of the rapidly growing offshore wind industry.
