James Fisher Marine Services has set up an office in the five-storey OrbisEnergy.
The company chose the Lowestoft centre to build relationships with offshore wind developers based there to raise the profile of its services and its offshore support vessel, Dart Fisher.
In its new office, the company – part of the James Fisher Group – is focusing on the development of its Offshore Wind Management System (OWMS)™ and its ability to deliver a more sophisticated and reliable approach to recording operational data to enable greater understanding around planning and managing offshore wind farm activities.
The company will be developing a control room for OWMS™ within the Orbis Energy Centre, which will utilise its specialist project support vessel, Dart Fisher.
James Fisher Marine Services has employed Loren Chamberlain-Clark, who graduated with an MSc in meteorology and oceanography from the University of East Anglia last year, as a graduate OWMS™ support engineer after a short internship with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) Skills for Energy team.
Loren will be based at the Lowerstoft office to help develop the system.
James Fisher Marine Services joins 23 other companies with staffed offices at OrbisEnergy and 41 virtual tenants.
