"MV “Rotra Vente” is a special designed vessel to carry heavy and high value windmill equipment. I have been sailing on the vessel since end of 2016 and we have been called different ports along the North Sea including port of Belfast.
For such kind of cargo it is obvious that much care and attention will be necessary when sailing during the winter seasons across the North Sea or around North of Scotland in order to avoid any risk of possible cargo damages caused by severe weather conditions.
During the winter period 2017/2018 and also for the present winter period 2018/2019 we were guided and advised by Vento Maritime. Even as a master of such kind a vessel must be always aware and ahead of latest weather forecasts the guidance by Vento Maritime was always a perfect second source to make decisions in regard of route/voyage planning. The advices/recommendations by Vento Maritime were always provided in a very professional and clear manner.
I would like to say thank you for the kind and professional assistance received in the past and looking forward to be guided further again during the present and upcoming winter seasons."
