With the aim of creating a leading offshore service provider, the two Danish specialist offshore service companies, Nordic Offshore and Offshore Marine Services (OMS), have decided to join forces under one single name and brand, Nordic Offshore Marine A/S.
The new company will continue to offer the same services as before to new and existing clients. At the same time, the combined strength will be used to develop new activities and to take on larger projects within the international offshore renewables-, offshore oil & gas-, and subsea cable industries. New, strong strategic shareholders will also be considered to support the continued growth of the company.
-The creation of Nordic Offshore Marine is the best way to develop the many synergies between the two companies. In combination, they will be able to take on much larger projects and play an important role in the growing offshore and subsea industries, says Søren Mikkelsen, founder of both companies and new Managing Director of Nordic Offshore Marine. Søren Mikkelsen has previously worked as the Director of Operations at Alcatel Submarine Services.
The combination of the two companies takes effect on 15 th August and all employees will remain in the organisation working out of a new head office in Faaborg in central Denmark.
Both Nordic Offshore and OMS, founded in 2002 and 2005 respectively, have worked in the offshore and subsea industries since their inception. Nordic Offshore has traditionally specialised in providing qualified and experienced offshore personnel to the offshore industry, both for permanent and temporary positions, operating worldwide for major offshore players. The Nordic Offshore personnel database offers a wide range of contractors including client representatives, surveyors, deck- and engine officers, project managers, riggers and supervisors. In particular, Nordic Offshore offers personnel with expert submarine cable know-how.
In addition to this, Nordic Offshore work as consultants and Project Managers in the offshore renewables and subsea cable industries especially within PLGR/route clearance, cable installation and offshore wind farm support.
OMS owns and operates the offshore support vessel OMS Pollux and also takes on various offshore maintenance and construction projects on its own or in cooperation with strong partners. The 4-point mooring vessel OMS Pollux has been used for a range of projects over the years, including pipeline inspection, ROV survey and dive support.For more information, please contact MD Søren Mikkelsen at +45 2965 9430 or email@example.com and visit www.nordicoffshore.dk.
