Survitec has used Seawork to publicise the recent restructure of its offshore division to better serve customers with assets operating in the oil, gas and offshore renewables sectors.

The reorganization of the business unit coincides with renewed activity in the offshore industry following the market downturn, together with Survitec’s overall strategy to hone its focus within key sectors.

“The offshore market is emerging from its recent low-point, while the offshore wind market has grown exponentially over the last decade,” said Ross Wilkinson, VP of U.K. and Scandinavia who leads Survitec Global Energy.

A key aspect of the investment has been the development and market introduction of Energy 360, a single service supplier concept similar to that which Survitec introduced to the merchant marine segment by way of SOLAS 360. However, Energy 360 relates more specifically to offshore evacuation, offshore abandonment, turbine transfer, operations and maintenance.

Energy 360 completely revolutionizes the offshore operator’s safety equipment needs, from procurement, servicing and replacement, while reducing risks and optimizing service costs.

“With today’s wind farm installation, maintenance and crew transfer vessels operating under the same safety regimes as rigs, platforms, anchor handlers, OSVs and PSVs, we can help reduce the operational challenges offshore operators and crews face when meeting the regulatory requirement. Even unmanned wind turbines have a safety requirement,” said Gary Ceeney, Sales Director, Global Energy.

Energy 360 taps into the demand for more extensive though-life equipment servicing, indicative from a spate of recent service contracts from across the offshore and wind energy sectors.

“A number of major offshore operators have recently renewed their global lifeboat service agreements with Survitec but have broadened the scope to include lifeboat re-hooking and the service of all fire-fighting and survival equipment,” said Wilkinson.

“The provision of a complete, all-encompassing equipment servicing, and maintenance package is becoming common practice as operators look to benefit from the commercial, logistical and technical advantages a single source supplier can bring on a global scale,” said Wilkinson.
