General management and consultancy

Managing the full range of marine services at dedicated terminals or at sea goes well beyond the provision of the services themselves.

  • Marine consultancy with regard to bollard pull/ towage studies, management and execution of simulations, drafting of operational and security procedures.
  • General marine project management such as drafting HSE/QA procedures, documentation and auditing of processes, local training to develop local employment to international quality and safety standards, and ultimately to transfer knowledge, as well as managing base stations, warehouses, storage facilities and workshops.
