The Netherlands: International Crew Services to Acquire 7Seas Project Services

International Crew Services and 7Seas Project Services B.V. have entered into a definitive agreement under which International Crew Services, a leading provider of Maritime personnel, will acquire 7Seas Project Services, a Dutch personnel provider for international operating jack-up rigs.

7Seas Project Services B.V. was established in 2007, primarily to meet the growing demand for (offshore) projects and crew manning for jack-up rigs in the oilfield and wind turbine industry.

The purchase of 7Seas Project Services B.V. further increases International Crew Services’ share in the maritime and offshore market and is expected to result in greater efficiencies. International Crew Services will use 7Seas Project Services B.V. existing network and knowledge to provide experienced and qualified personnel to customers and prospects. The acquisition is an opportunity to provide customers broader and more comprehensive offerings.

7Seas Project Services B.V., which will be renamed to 7Seas Renewable Energy B.V., will hold office at the same premises as International Crew Services in Capelle aan den IJssel. Jan Theeuwsen and Daniëlle Stangenberger will remain working for 7Seas Renewable Energy B.V. to assure the current level of services. The companies presently employ over 600 crews.

International Crew Services and 7Seas Renewable Energy B.V. are both present at the Europort 2011 exhibition at booth no 4302, to be held at Ahoy Rotterdam from 8 till 11 November 2011.
