SeaEnergy builds fleet

UK-listed SeaEnergy is teaming up with a Singapore company on offshore vessel shipmanagement.

Its SeaEnergy Ship Management unit has formed a 51:49 joint venture with Otto Marine's Go Offshore.

GOSeaEnergy Ship Management will manage Go's vessels in UK, European and adjacent waters.

It already manages a Go research ship and will take over an anchor-handler this summer, with more vessels to follow.

The pair will also team up on the construction and operation of accommodation and maintenance vessels for offshore wind farm and oil and gas support using SeaEnergy’s "walk-to-work" designs.

Mike Comerford, SeaEnergy’s operations director and chairman of GOSeaEnergy, said: “We are delighted to be managing Go’s vessels in the region and look forward to working closely with Go over the years to come both in the shipmanagement joint venture and in advancing our plans and aspirations for offshore wind farm support vessels, where we are seeing an increase in tendering activity.”

Garrick Stanley, CEO of Otto Marine, said: “This is an important step in broadening our operational capability locally in European waters and we are delighted to be working with SeaEnergy in the region.”
