OEM Group has secured a 2 year contract worth up to £1 million with Go Marine to deliver engine support services to its fleet of vessels operating across the world for the oil and gas industry.
Pursuant to the agreement, OEM Group will carry out the procurement of engine spare parts, electrical components and systems, as well as providing personnel, project management and maintenance to support work across the different vessel types and regions Go Marine operates in around the world.
The maritime company’s assets include ROV and dive support vessels, barges, offshore firefighting craft as well as a floatel, and operates in regions such as AsiaPac, West Africa, Gulf of Mexico, and the North Sea.
OEM Group founder and managing director Barry Park said: “The company has been an existing supplier to Go Marine over the past 12 months. During this period, we’ve developed a close working relationship through our team’s hard work and determination to respond quickly to their specific multi-discipline equipment needs with high quality support and cost effective services I believe to be unrivalled in the sector.
“At a time when the market conditions are extremely tough and reliance is paramount, being awarded this contract demonstrates the confidence Go Marine has in OEM Group to ensure their vessels’ engines remain operational all over the world.
“We look forward to taking this next step and delivering further value to Go Marine as well as continuing with our own global growth and expansion plans.”
GO Marine Group founder and CEO Garrick Stanley said: “Having OEM Group on board as our engineering service provider for our vessels has streamlined the planned maintenance systems on our vessels maximizing uptime and service delivery to our clients whilst reducing overall servicing costs.
“In an extremely challenging market, companies like OEM can make all the difference to a vessel owner’s success or failure. Having a relatively small fleet spread globally, OEM has the ability to react and deliver to not only meeting our servicing requirements but get us back up and running in the shortest timeframe possible in the event of unforeseen failure globally.”
