Survitec Group, a manufacturer of marine safety and survival equipment, has restructured its offshore division to better serve customers with assets operating in the oil, gas and wind (renewable) energy sectors, it said.
The reorganization of the business unit coincides with renewed activity in the offshore industry following the market downturn, together with Survitec’s overall strategy to hone its focus within key sectors.
Ross Wilkinson, VP of U.K. and Scandinavia who leads Survitec Global Energy, said, “The offshore market is emerging from its recent low-point, while the offshore wind market has grown exponentially over the last decade."
Ross added, "The investments we have made in our offshore division, specifically within the Americas, are very much tailored to meeting the sector’s emergent safety requirements and forms part of a wider strategy. This positions Survitec as the trusted safety partner, not only a supplier, across all the market segments in which we operate.”
Gary Ceeney, Sales Director, Global Energy, Survitec Americas, added, “We have developed a centralized, dedicated customer service, procurement, training and support hub in Pasadena, Texas which offers significant advantages for our offshore customers in the United States. We can provide a single point of service, a one-stop-shop capable of delivering their entire safety requirements.”
A key aspect of the investment has been the development and market introduction of Energy 360, a single service supplier concept similar to that which Survitec introduced to the merchant marine segment by way of SOLAS 360. However, Energy 360 relates more specifically to offshore evacuation, offshore abandonment, turbine transfer, operations and maintenance.
Energy 360 completely revolutionizes the offshore operator’s safety equipment needs, from procurement, servicing and replacement, while reducing risks and optimizing service costs.
Energy 360 taps into the demand for more extensive though-life equipment servicing, indicative from a spate of recent service contracts from across the offshore and wind energy sectors.
