Specialist shipping, logistics and insurance law firm Myton Law has let a floor of its Hull offices to Muehlhan Wind Service A/S.
Riverside House on Hull’s Humber waterfront is Muehlhan Wind Service’s first UK office. The Danish company was established in 2017 by the German Muehlhan Group as a dedicated service provider to the offshore wind energy sector offering surface treatment, onshore pre-installation and assembly and offshore installation and ongoing maintenance, drawing on decades of group experience of providing industrial services to other industries worldwide.
Welcoming Muehlhan Wind Service to the region and to Riverside House, Myton Law director Scott Yates explained the background to the office let, he said:
Myton Law has an established relationship with Muehlhan having provided legal advice and assistance to another entity within the Group and we learnt through another client, which provides safety equipment to Muehlhan Wind Service, that they were looking for a Humber base. Our second floor was vacant. We were keen to let to a business with which we shared synergy so, as an existing client working in a sector in which we specialise, Muehlhan are an ideal fit for us.
Daniel Davidson, Muehlhan Wind Service’s site manager, is launching the Humber office. He said:
With all the wind turbine developments along the East coast now is a good time to be here providing our services, which include expert access to blades for inspection, maintenance, repairs and upgrades. It made sense, because of the growing wind energy business presence and we’re pleased to have found high quality office space in such a good location with the added attraction of great views over the Humber.
The company has taken 127 square metres of space. Muehlhan opened the office on April 20 and has a team of 16 technicians working from the office on current projects. The outcome of a number of tenders is likely to lead to that number growing by around another 20 technicians in the coming months.
