UK: SeaEnergy Launches Ship Management Company
SeaEnergy, the energy services group, announces that it is launching a ship management company, SeaEnergy Ship Management Limited, to offer ship management services across the offshore energy sector with a particular specialism in “walk to work”.
It has recruited the team which formerly operated as Brooklyn Shipping Limited, led by Rennie Cameron. The team has a long track record of delivering a highly professional, cost-focussed ship management service, and has a unique depth of experience in supporting marine operations involving dynamically positioned (DP) vessels and “walk to work” solutions. The team is already in place and Rennie Cameron is to join as Managing Director of SeaEnergy Ship Management in the next few weeks.
The SeaEnergy Ship Management team will contribute to SeaEnergy’s businesses by delivering a specialist ship management service to wind farm and oil & gas clients seeking “walk to work” access to installations for maintenance projects, by supporting SeaEnergy Marine’s own vessel operations, and by contributing a new dimension of expertise to the SeaEnergy consulting business. The ship management operation starts with immediate revenue through the provision of superintendents and other technical experts for ship owners.
The new team’s operational capability will be complemented by the recognised engineering and naval architecture expertise already within SeaEnergy. This has enabled SeaEnergy to develop unique purpose-designed vessels with exceptional performance in walk to work roles, and will enhance the ship management capability by applying technical selection criteria to pick vessels from the existing fleet, thereby ensuring high performance in projects and operations requiring “walk to work” solutions.
Rennie Cameron said “the team is delighted to be joining SeaEnergy, whose vision and values align closely with ours, and where our skills and contribution can add to the growth of an exciting group.”
Mike Comerford, Director of Operations at SeaEnergy added “We’re delighted to be adding a high quality, cost-focussed ship management capability to the group. This builds on the existing aspects of our business, allows us to broaden our range of services to clients, and creates a unique offering underpinned by a deep understanding of the technical and operational requirements of “walk to work” operations from dynamically positioned vessels”.
