New Rig Customer for Port of Cromarty Firth 05/02/2015
A recently announced Rig upgrade and maintenance project has marked a strong start to 2015 for the Port of Cromarty Firth.
The company has chosen the Cromarty Firth supply chain to undertake upgrade, repairs & maintenance on the ‘Floatel Superior’, the company’s 400-bed flagship floating hotel used by workers carrying out repairs and maintenance to off-shore installations.
Floatel International owns and operates a modern fleet of accommodation and construction support vessels (floatels) and will for the first time be making use of the deep water facility & yard services available at the Invergordon-based Trust Port.
The work is being undertaken by Semco Maritime, the international project engineering company, who whilst only establishing their Rig refurbishment base at the Port at the start of 2014, have successfully carried out major projects in the last year, supported by the local supply chain.
Bob Buskie, chief executive of the Port of Cromarty Firth said: “This is great news for everyone involved. Floatel International has recognised the world-class facility on offer here and I am delighted that the company has chosen the Cromarty Firth from competing European ports. Their decision to come here further highlights the key strengths of the port and its supply chain and with additional work anticipated later in the year, I hope this marks the first of a number of visits over the coming years.”
Frank Hall, General Manager for Semco Maritime said: We are delighted to have been selected by Floatel International for this project & we will work tirelessly to ensure this will be the beginning of a long & successful relationship between our clients, Port of Cromarty Firth and Semco Maritime, bringing more work to the Invergordon area.
The Floatel Superior was brought into the deep water Firth on Christmas day & work is set to be completed around the end of February. There are ongoing discussions regarding further opportunities with Floatel International this year, which can only enhance their relationship with the port facility, its partners & suppliers.
