Offshore engineering outfit Global Marine Group (GMG) has expanded its UK operations by opening a base at the Port of Blyth, on the northeast coast of the country.
The company said Blyth will serve as a regional base for asset management and equipment storage, as well as a mobilisation and deployment site for the company’s fleet.
Multi-role DP2 vessels CS Sovereign and CS Recorder will operate out of Blyth.
“The expansion to the Port of Blyth is the latest step in Global Marine’s plan for continued growth and the development of a suite of local operational hubs situated where customers need support,” the company said.
It added that Blyth will allow Global Marine, which also owns the CWind business unit, to access a wider market in the North Sea and further afield in Europe.
Global Marine Group chief executive Ian Douglas said: “We expect that by operating in close physical proximity to our customers, suppliers and trusted partners, we will further strengthen our relationships with key market players and continue to reinforce our reputation for delivering projects safely, on time and to a high level of quality.”
Global Marine also has operational bases in the UK at Grimsby in Lincolnshire and Portland in Dorset.
