Britain’s Global Marine Group (GMG), an offshore engineering services provider to the telecommunications, renewables and oil and gas industries, has launched Global Offshore, a new business unit that will deliver trenching and power cable laying services to the oil and gas sector. Global Offshore will focus on projects that include pipeline, cable and umbilical installation and trenching, platform-to-platform connectivity and complete platform to subsea installation services from a new office in Aberdeen.
Global Offshore’s assets include the Symphony, a multipurpose vessel with an extensive 1,400 sq m deck space, two powerful and flexible Q1400 jet trenchers and two work class remotely operated vehicles. In addition, depending on the needs of specific projects, Global Offshore will have access to GMG’s full capabilities and diverse fleet, including four specialist cable installation and repair vessels, four maintenance vessels and 16 crew transport vessels.
Global Offshore will sit alongside existing GMG business units Global Marine and CWind. Global Marine provides fibre-optic cable installation and maintenance solutions to global telecommunications providers while CWind delivers power cable and asset management services topside and subsea to the offshore renewables and utilities markets.
