Background History

Over recent years, our strategy has been to meet the requirements of the expanding aquaculture sector with major investment in new
​multi-purpose vessels. This has enabled us to secure long-term contracts while gaining an excellent reputation for safety and reliability.

We have built a strong team of talented people whose expertise ensures that we deliver the professional level of service our clients demand.  Safety is top priority, therefore our vessels are operated by highly skilled crew who have the industry experience, with continual training, to satisfy the customer’s requirements – this is what wins us repeat contracts.

In 2015 we secured our first contract for wind farm support and will continue to expand and develop into new markets while investing in the vessels, personnel and accreditations required to sustain that growth and maintain our excellent reputation for customer satisfaction.
