SBM Offshore has announced the launch of two new companies – Imodco Terminals S.A. and Imodco Services S.A.
The new companies have been established the meet the challenges of the dynamic market for CALM (Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring) Terminals and after sales services; they will operate independently from the rest of SBM Offshore, while functioning as 100% affiliates within the Group.
Clients will benefit from a more proactive partner in this area and in its role as shareholder, the SBM Group will strengthen its leadership on its historical business of CALM Buoys and relevant after sales services.
This will facilitate the two Imodco companies in their objective to become the recognised leaders on the relevant technical and commercial innovations by providing solutions over the full lifecycle for CALM Terminals.
Bruno Chabas, CEO of SBM Offshore, commented: “By creating the two Imodco entities the Group ensures that our clients will benefit from a highly experienced and dedicated team as well as a wealth of terminal technology. This new approach to doing business adds value to what clients have previously enjoyed by ensuring that Imodco is highly responsive to clients’ needs as well as providing support for their operability – the key to future success.”
Imodco Terminals is responsible for sales and execution of CALM Terminals turnkey projects. The company provides innovative engineering designs tailored to the specific requirements of the market. In addition, by building on SBM Offshore’s Terminals Technology and undertaking continual product development in liaison with customers, Imodco Terminals brings innovative solutions to meet the industry’s future needs.
The aftersales services are provided by Imodco Services. The strong client focus and extensive knowledge of the team ensures a fast response when spares or services for existing CALM terminals are required.
This company will provide parts sales and inspection and intervention services.
