Since Norsafe Aberdeen opened for business last July, its UK offshore clients have benefitted from having a service station in close proximity.
One notable business win by the UK site last month was with Prosafe, the world’s leading owner and operator of semi-submersible accommodation vessels, who signed a 5 year service contract with Norsafe AS on 12th January 2016.
The UK site is run by Director Ronnie Vettese who has over 10 years’ experience in the maritime sector, having previously been Divisional Director at First Integrated Solutions, provider of a range of services to the oil, gas and marine industries.
Mr Vettese is pleased with how positively the new location has been received by clients and wants to build on this success and grow the business in the UK.
“I am delighted with how well the new UK site has been received, centrally located as it is near our key offshore clients, and I look forward to working closely with them now and in the future,” said Mr Vettesse.
“Norsafe is so much more than a global lifeboat designer, manufacturer and maintenance provider. We also produce a quality range of Military and Professional boats, multi-purpose workboats and daughter craft along with a comprehensive range of davits and hooks,” he added.
All Norsafe boats are designed, built and equipped to comply with SOLAS regulations and its new three tiered CARE Plan service agreement has been designed to suit clients with varying maintenance requirements and budgets.
Norsafe has its own production and sales/service companies in Norway, China, Greece, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Australia, USA, UK, Japan, Brazil and the Netherlands. In addition, Norsafe Group has a network of 45 authorized service partners spread across all continents.
