Seacat Extends Vessel Inspection Deal with SMC

Seacat Services has extended the vessel inspection agreement with Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC).

The agreement marks the second year that SMC has been contracted to carry out the Marine Inspection for Small Workboats (eMISW) of Seacat Services’ 14 vessels.

According to the UK-based company, through the eMISW inspections, SMC ensures that each vessel continues to meet the needs of the offshore wind sector.

“The extension of this vessel inspection agreement is evidence of Seacat’s belief that SMC shares our commitment to safety and quality,” said Ian Baylis, Managing Director of Seacat Services.

“Keeping a valid eMISW is essential for all of our vessels and operations, and SMCs flexibility in providing these inspections as and when each vessel becomes available has been invaluable in maintaining availability for our customers. We look forward to continuing our work with the SMC team in 2019.”

Seacat Services added that SMC has access to Accredited Vessel Inspectors (AVIs) across the UK and Europe, allowing the organization of inspections at short notice to fit into periods of weather and vessel standby.
