James Fisher and Sons plc has launched James Fisher Subsea Excavation, the new trading name and brand of the sole dedicated mass flow excavation (MFE) service provider worldwide.
The launch follows a period of growth and development in James Fisher’s MFE business over the last 15 months that commenced with the combination of the assets and knowledge of KDM Marine with James Fisher’s HydroDigger fleet, as well as the assets of X-Subsea being acquired in May 2015, to deliver the current JFSE capability. JFSE is now able to deploy a significant range of MFE tooling and other assets from within the wider James Fisher group to support subsea projects globally.
“The launch of JFSE reflects our continued commitment to deliver the very best mass flow excavation services to our global client base. It also demonstrates the company’s strength in the marketplace and reassures our customers of our global reach, financial stability and position of strength for future growth,” explained Kenneth Mackie, managing director of James Fisher Subsea Excavation.
James Fisher Subsea Excavation, led by a team with unrivalled experience, will support its customers from principal locations in Aberdeen, North America, Mexico, Dubai and Singapore with access to James Fisher’s facilities in more than forty countries to fully support customer operations globally.
“JFSE now has the world’s largest subsea mass flow excavation capability, meaning we can provide a comprehensive and value added service, with access to new regions and opportunities by leveraging the footprint and capabilities of the wider James Fisher Group. Our aim is to provide clarity and confidence to our customers, while developing our position in the global marketplace,” concluded Aidan Douglas, group operations director at James Fisher and Sons plc.
